The Clyde Valley has long been recognised as an area of unique beauty, providing inspiration for the paintings of artists such as Turner. Made famous by noted artists, New Lanark and the Falls of Clyde have been a tourist destination since the18th century. Today artists and visitors are still inspired by the spectacle of the waterfalls and the dramatic natural beauty of its surroundings.
