After a fairly mild start to 2017 on Thursday 12th January winter truly arrived at New Lanark World Heritage Site (as well as across the rest of Scotland). Traffic wasn’t moving very far so our morning commute into work turned into a Narnia-esque walk through Lanark and then down through the snow-dusted woods until we could see the tops of the Mills peeking through the white-out backdrop. The village really does look magical in the snow – worthy of a christmas card or winter postcard! When the snow stops falling it’s the perfect chance to enjoy a cold, crisp walk along the riverside to see the famous Falls of Clyde.
Dundaff Linn can be seen from the far end of New Lanark village. From there it is around a 20-30 minute walk along the river boardwalk until you arrive at Corra Linn. It is then another 20-30 minutes before you arrive at Bonnington Linn. (in total this route is 3 miles)
You can find out more about this walking route on our website and enjoy some teaser photos below!
I hope that’s inspired you to enjoy a winter walk to the Falls of Clyde at New Lanark – just remember your hat and gloves! You can always pop into the Mill Café on the return journey for a warming treat.
