The conservation village of New Lanark is the gateway to the Falls of Clyde Wildlife Reserve, which is owned and managed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust. From New Lanark you can enjoy beautiful riverside walks through the Reserve, following in the footsteps of the many poets and painters including Wordsworth and Turner. There are three waterfalls upstream from New Lanark lying on the Clyde Walkway: Dundaff Linn (3 metres) is the close to the village. Corra Linn (28 metres) is about 20-25 minutes walk, and Bonnington Linn (11 metres) about 30-45 minutes walk.

For information about the Falls of Clyde Reserve, visit the Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Visitor Centre at the old mill Dyeworks in New Lanark, and explore the Wildwood interactive guide to the surrounding countryside.

Millions of people enjoy watching Formula 1 racing, or competing against the Playstation or X Box in a video racing game – few have the opportunity to pull on a racing helmet and line up on the starting grid waiting for the lights to change, with your heart pounding and adrenalin flowing!

Indoor karting offers you the opportunity to emulate Jenson Button, Lewis Hamilton and the new Scottish driver Paul Di Resta (who all started their careers racing karts) and enjoy all the hi-octane thrills which makes motorsport so glamorous.

Whether you are a novice or Formula 1 star you will find a visit to ScotKart Indoor Kart Racing in Glasgow is a rewarding and memorable experience as you learn how to master the 40MPH karts and demanding circuits.
