Clyde Valley Tourist Route


Picturesque Route
 

The Clyde Valley Tourist Route which takes you on a 42 mile/67 Km journey passing through spectacular scenery and many interesting and important sites which offer insights into the rich cultural, natural and industrial heritage of the Clyde Valley.

There are lots of places to stop and explore on foot or why not stop for coffee, gifts or botanical inspiration at one of the many garden centres which line the route.
 

Lanarkshire Attractions
 

Turn off the M74 at Abington (or Hamilton if approaching from the opposite direction) and follow the River Clyde through an area of contrasting landscapes, rich in historical interest.

Attractions include the World Heritage village of New Lanark, the model industrial community founded by David Dale in the late 18th century and developed by, Robert Owen.

Also well worth a visit are the magnificently restored former hunting lodge of Chatelherault, near to Hamilton, the David Livingstone Centre at Blantyre or the cluster of fascinating museums around the market town of Biggar.

If you want to try something more strenuous, you can take advantage of the extensive watersport facilities, theme park and nature trails at Strathclyde Country Park
