This is a beautiful circular walk in the forest along the River Clyde. Starting in New Lanark, you'll pass by Dunduff Linn and Corra Linn before crossing the river at the weir and walking back alongside the opposite side of the water. At the other end of the loop, cross the river at the Riverside Road bridge and pass Castlebank Park before arriving back at the starting point.

Really nice and scenic walk, very slippy in the snow and ice weather we’ve been having recently though so walking boots are a must for this trail!

WalkingGreat!Muddy

A beautiful walk along the Clyde through picturesque woodland. The views are stunning with so many opportunities along the way to stop and admire. The terrain on the side across from the heritage site did get very boggy underfoot so walking boots are recommended.

Great trail!! Highly recommending to go clockwise, that way you will experience the majority of views when you full of energy, as the second half is more of a relaxing forest walk.

the first half of the route was honestly rubbish. the pathways weren't very well kept and there were fallen trees all over. however, it vastly improved once we reached the waterfalls. worth the walk (almost) but I'd recommend the smaller 3 mile route rather than the loop.

we did the route anti clockwise, and couldn't recommend it enough. the beginning goes through some nice houses, and once you go round and over the bridge you make your way to the falls. when you get to the main falls, make your way around and below the viewing point and onto the falls themselves. It was an amazing picnic spot! I prefer this direction as you end on a high with great views of the falls, if you go the suggested route you end on a low in my opinion. lovely trail, not boggy, as I had anticipated a wet muddy walk.

Great views of the waterfalls and the Clyde. Some muddy regions but overall a good 10km trail!

Great walk - lots of nice spots to see the Falls of Clyde and lots of places to stop and rest. Some parts were a bit boggy but the majority of the route was not.

First to Review

Starting at the mill and walking along the boardwalk is a nice walk then after you cross the bridge you get a couple of fantastic viewing platforms to see the power of the waterfalls. then it's a long walk back to New Lanark. after you cross the 2nd bridge there is a gate that says keep dogs on leash and 24h CCTV in operation. this is the gate to get back on to the walkway. it looks like private property but it's fine to go through. took us 2h45min to walk the entire walk.
