Walk 4. New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde

Walk 4. New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde Walk from an 18th century 'model village' to the River Clyde's highest falls.

Pioneer industrialist Robert Own went against the grain when he turned tiny New Lanark into a model village 200 years ago. Rejecting the exploitative habits of his contemporaries, Owen created a beautiful place that has now been restored as a World Heritage Village and draws visitors all year round. Beyond the village lies the wooded Falls of Clyde Nature Reserve, managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust (SWT).
