On the clearest days the view takes in the Lake District, the mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland, Ailsa Craig and Arran in the Firth of Clyde, the Arrochar Alps and as far north as Lochnagar in the Cairngorms.
- Falls of Clyde at New Lanark: Walk from New Lanark, the UNESCO World Heritage site, and explore the River Clyde’s hidden side. Follow the river as it surges through a narrow gorge and over three spectacular waterfalls. Walking through the Falls of Clyde nature reserve, where birdsong competes with the roar of the waterfalls, keep a look out for kingfishers, otters and badgers. In spring the highlight of the walk is watching the resident peregrine falcons raise their fledglings.
- Southern Upland Way: The Southern Upland Way is Britain’s first official coast to coast long distance foot-path. It runs 212 miles (340 km) from Portpatrick on the south-west coast of Scotland to Cockburnspath on the eastern seaboard. It offers superb and varied walking country, still undiscovered by many enthusiasts. The Way provides a real challenge for the experienced walker, yet some of the shorter stretches are suitable for families and the less ambitious.
