New Lanark World Heritage Site
New Lanark World Heritage Site is a great place to visit in itself. The former 18th century cotton spinning mill village, founded by David Dale and Richard Arkwright, is located on the banks of the Falls of Clyde within an hour’s drive of Glasgow and Edinburgh.
It gained international fame under the enlightened management of Robert Owen and was a successful spinning centre until its closure in 1968.
New Lanark village is now owned and operated by the charity, New Lanark Trust, and is a popular visitor attraction.
Today it is recognised as one of Scotland’s six UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
