Scottish Wildlife Trust Falls of Clyde

The River Clyde flows through the gorge over a series of 4 spectacular waterfalls, from which the reserve takes its name. Corra Linn, the largest of the waterfalls, features an 84 foot drop and was immortalised by William Woodsworth after a visit in 1802 as the "Clyde's most majestic daughter".

The reserve stretches along both sides of the Clyde gorge, from the historic village of New Lanark southwards to Bonnington Weir. As well as the spectacular falls the reserve contains fine examples of oak woodland and an abundance of wildlife with over 100 species of bird.

Under the care of The Scottish Wildlife Trust the Falls of Clyde Visitor Centre, will tell you all that you need to know about the creatures and features of the reserve. Discover what lurks beneath the River Clyde or experience life as a badger with the interactive displays and learn about bats in the unique 'bat booth'.

The Trust's Ranger Service organise educational events and guided walks throughout the year, include badger watching, childrens' activities as well as guided walks to look at fungi, flowers, waterfalls and bats.
