Around the area

Clyde Valley offers a great deal to visitors, with attractions ranging from the world-renowned conservation village at New Lanark, to the Museum of Leading Mining at Wanlockhead.

New Lanark gives visitors the chance to travel back into the early 18th century, giving an insight into the life of a young mill worker, with no schooling or leisure time. The village is a World Heritage Centre, joining such attractions as the Royal Mile in Edinburgh in international status.

Further afield, the cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow make ideal day trips, as does Southwest Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway.

There are also many local towns and villages to explore during your stay. The Borders towns of Peebles, Biggar and Moffat are all within easy reach, each offering something different to visitors. Moffat and Peebles are both home to many woollen mill shops, offering the chance to buy high quality Scottish knitwear.

The market town of Lanark was once home to William Wallace, and today is the main town in the area. Lanark has two supermarkets as well as a busy high street.

The highest golf course in Scotland can be found in nearby Leadhills.
