A 16km (10 mile) walk from Carluke railway station to Lanark with a total ascent of 100m. The route takes us past the birthplace of Major-General William Roy, founder of the Ordnance Survey, and then follows the Clyde Walkway on the banks of the River Clyde as far as the World Heritage Site of New Lanark village. Finally, a short, steep ascent from New Lanark takes us to the finishing point of the walk at Lanark railway station.
