Lanark, located 25 miles southeast of Glasgow, is a World Heritage Site featuring a fascinating collection of restored mill buildings and warehouses by the Clyde River. The mill was built in 1785 and was once the largest cotton spinning complex in all of Britain. You will need at least half a day to explore the mill. Another major attraction is the New Millenium Experience, a high tech ride that takes you through Lanark’s past and its possible future. No visit to the town would be complete without a walk up to the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Center by the river, where you can find wildlife and conservation exhibitions as well as take part in bat walks or badger watching. The riverside path takes you about 2.5 miles to the beautiful Cora Lynn waterfalls that inspired both Wordsworth and Turner.
