Falls of Clyde at New Lanark

Falls of Clyde at New Lanark, Scotland

In course of last couple of days the S.W. of Scotland has experienced very heavy rainfall leading to localised flooding. With this in mind  drove to New Lanark World Heritage Site to view the Falls of Clyde in full flow. Regrettably, the only still image I took was from a cellphone camera (above) which is of mediocre quality. However, I did take a number of reasonable quality video clips which are provided below and which demonstrate the sheer force and volume of water. As I drove back to Glasgow I followed the Clyde Valley and noted that the river was close to bursting its banks in a number of places. The rain continues as I write this!

The River Clyde is Scotland’s 3rd longest river. It rise in South Lanarkshire and then runs for 106 miles past Glasgow to enter the sea on the west coast.
