Hard to believe that just thirty miles or so downstream this is the Clyde of Glasgow, and 15 miles after that the wondrous Firth of Clyde. Well worth a hike, plenty of good riverside hostellries around, and several other attractions. Obviously best seen on a good day... or when the Clyde is in spate.

The walk along the Clyde Walkway is one of my favourites in the area. It is an easy walk and you can go as far as you want before turning back. I recommend that you go as far as Cora Linn to seen the waterfall there, but going further is equally lovely.

The walk out from New Lanark through the woods follows the river with nice paths and decking along the edge before you start to pant going uphill. When you get to the top and walk around the falls looking down it is a great view - wish it had been raining hard for a few days before to see it... More

The two of us went on a lovely walk along the river from the visitor centre. The boardwalk is very well maintained, although still slightly slippy at times, and there were a couple of muddy patches. Otherwise, this was a great walk - though there are a couple of steeper sections so those less mobile might find it tougher.

We recently took a walk along the Falls of Clyde walkway. The river and waterfalls were beautiful and in full flow after some rain. Walk is well sign posted with lots of viewing areas along the way. Easy walk, would suit most people. Would recommend - winter or summer!
