You’re invited to join a leisurely walk to Corra Linn, the largest of the Falls of Clyde, with your very own Victorian tour guide – as seen on Michael Portillo’s ‘Great British Railway Journeys,' as part of the New Lanark Spring Food and Gift Fair.
Allison, a storyteller and folklorist will share her knowledge of the Lockhart-Ross family who left us the legacy of paths, viewing platforms and designed landscapes on the Bonnington estate. Alive with history you will discover listed buildings, hidden features, famous visitors from past and present, the folklore of indigenous plants and creatures, local legends, as well as the opportunity to spot wild birds and animals on the wildlife reserve.
It is a truly magnificent landscape, rich in ancient and no longer forgotten history. If you enjoy discovering the past held in the present, and walking in beautiful countryside then this tour is a must! Includes a stop for handmade Victorian style refreshments of tea and fudge.
