New Lanark is an 18th century village, built from 1785, in the steep gorge of the Clyde Valley just 1 mile from Lanark. The industrial buildings took advantage of the force of the Clyde to power the processes of the textile industry. The social housing and workers conditions were many years ahead of their time. Still inhabited, the town is now a United Nations World Heritage Site. Enough to see and do for a whole day. (10 miles from Cormiston).

The Falls of Clyde are a short walk up-river from New Lanark. The walk along the river gorge is through a well signposted nature reserve, managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust. The largest fall, Corra Linn, drops some 27 metres down the gorge.
