Explore Lanark, New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde this spring

The Easter Holidays are almost here already! Whilst it might be a spring like no other, there are still stunning local landscapes and attractions to enjoy safely. 

Lanark boasts a number of 'free to visit' outdoor attractions including:  Langloch Farm, Lanark Loch, Falls of Clyde, Castlebank Park, Lanark Racecourse and New Lanark World Heritage Site.
