Nestled in Lanarkshire's Clyde Valley just 1 hour from Glasgow and Edinburgh, New Lanark World Heritage Site is internationally famous for its historic buildings, beautiful landscape and over 200 years of significant social history. The mill village was founded & built in 1785 by David Dale and Richard Arkwright, and then managed for 25 years from 1800 by the pioneering Robert Owen. New Lanark is now recognised as one of Scotland's six UNESCO World Heritage Sites of 'outstanding universal value' and welcomes over 300,000 site visitors annually. At New Lanark today you can still wonder at the stunning architecture and enjoy the beautiful landscape - but there's a lot more on offer... Visitors can explore the history of the village through the New Lanark Visitor Centre and enjoy stunning woodland walks through the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve to see the famous waterfalls. The Mill Café serves up a range of delicious home baking, hot lunches, tea, coffee and New Lanark Ice Cream. The Mill Shop offers a delightful range of gifts, Scottish produce and New Lanark Wool which is spun on-site using historic textile machinery. Visitors can even wake up in a World Heritage Site by staying at the New Lanark Mill Hotel, Wee Row Hostel or Self-catering Waterhouses which rest on the banks of the River Clyde.

Rather like timer travel as you drop into the valley beside the crystal bubbling waters of the river Clyde. Beautifully restored, the old mills and accommodation bear testimony to the pioneering work of philanthropist Robert Owen. So much to see with the mill experience and...More

This takes you back in time And was amazed to find that I recognised that my mother and father used. As an engineer I was interested in in all the old machinery still in working order. All in all a marvellous journey into the past

You could get the train from Edi to Lanark and walk down but its a long walk down hill and a taxi may be cheaper instead of your feet.

hi Tiger. not sure you can make it. I only know the walking path to get to the falls, and there you would not pass with a scooter. but eventually there is also a road leading there. sorry, can't help any more.

It's a fabulous place for dog walking & loads of dogs around. No dog-friendly eating places though.
