Romantic Walks in Lanarkshire

With miles of sprawling landscapes Lanarkshire is home to some of Scotland’s most magical and picturesque walking routes.

Use the below guide to find the romantic roam which is right for you and your loved one.


New Lanark World Heritage Site

 It is easy to fall head over heels in love with this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Home to spectacular features, including the roaring waterfalls of the Falls of Clyde, New Lanark has inspired romantic poets for generations.

Follow the path as it winds around the narrow gorge and you’ll be captivated by the area’s majestic beauty. End your trip by visiting the New Lanark Mill Hotel for a candlelight meal for two.


Colzium Estate

An architectural jewel inspired by the Renaissance period, Colzium House is surrounded by acres of manicured gardens, home to rare and colorful plant life.   

During the winter months you’ll be able to relish in sights of snow drops, conifers and heathers as you wander around the Estate.



Chatelherault Country Park

Once the summer home of the Duke of Hamilton and his wife, this five-star accredited attraction is one of Lanarkshire’s most charming destinations.

Stretching over four miles, the route follows the mystical gorge of the River Avon through some of Scotland’s oldest woodlands. 

Walk peacefully hand in hand, while listening to the sounds of singing birds nestled in the surrounding oak trees.


Tinto Hill

 If you’re looking for something a little more challenging, Tinto Hill  is the perfect choice for couples wanting to take their relationship to new heights.

At 450 meters high, you’ll enjoy spectacular views of Bonnie Scotland and, on a clear day, you can see as far as Northern Ireland and the Lake District.

End the date by splitting a piece of homemade cake at the nearby Tinto Tearoom.

Calderglen Country Park

For those looking to enjoy some alone time with your special someone, but are also on childcare duty, Calderglen Country Park provides the perfect mix of picturesque scenery and activities to occupy the little ones.

With a children’s zoo, playpark, ornamental gardens and a wooded glen which extends over 5km, this park has something the whole family can enjoy.
