of the most impressive attractions at New Lanark in Scotland is the Falls of Clyde,
a stunning waterfall 85 feet high.
The waterfall was immortalised by
William Wordsworth who called it the Clyde's "most majestic daughter".
Visit a range of woods for animals such as Badger and Deer
plus stunning song spectacles from woodland birds.
- If you go down to the woods today, you'll enjoy deer
stalking, bird watching and woodland walks.
