new Lanark and surrounding Villages
Visit New Lanark Village, , a stunning conservation project, on the banks of the River Clyde, in the Clyde Valley basin. The village was host to some world leading Cotton Mills, and the beautiful purpose built village (to acommodate the workers) is now part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Explore the ideas of Robert Owen, who laid the groundwork for modern or rices in the workplace. Wander round the village, enjoy the fabulous building, the beauty of the Falls of The Clye, and enjoy a tour of the Mill through the eyes of Annie McLeod, who lived in New Lanark in 1820. An amazing insight into times gone by.
We can also visit the mighty craignethan Castle, which is situated nearby, and was the last medeival castle to be built in Scotland! Sitting high in the rugged countryside, the views around this are are simply fabulous!
We will I sit the New Lanark Heritage Site, and enjoy the visitor experience. The Annie McLeod experience is extremely worthwhile and informative, and gives an insight into how life was for a 10 year old girl working in the Mills in 1820.
The village has lots to see, and all included within the ticket price.
We will have lunch here, in one of the converted Mills, and if you would like, we can visit the beautiful gift shop which adjoins.
Time dependant, we will hopefully be able to pay a visit to Craignethan Castle also, which is situated nearby. . . . . set in stunning scenery, truly a hidden gem!
