For a period of 11 weeks starting on 21 August 2017 and finishing on 10 November 2017, some sections of the public path network at Corehouse Estate will be temporarily closed to allow tree felling works associated with woodland restructuring to proceed safely. You are advised that during this period, machinery will be operating at various locations.
For your own safety and that of the contractor’s staff you are requested to avoid using the sections of route highlighted on the accompanying plan. South Lanarkshire Council have agreed to these temporary closures on grounds of health and safety.
Path closures are also in place on the blue waymarked Woodland Trail on the New Lanark side of the river due to ongoing major renovation works by Scottish Power on parts of the Bonnington Power Station. The main Clyde Walkway footpath to view the waterfalls is open and unaffected. Diversions are in place to avoid the closed sections. Again, please comply with any signage for your own safety.
This reserve is famous for its spectacular waterfalls, historic visitors and scenic woodland walks. Over 100 bird species have been recorded including dipper, raven and kingfisher. Daubenton’s bats can be spotted feeding over the river in the evenings. Badgers forage amongst the undergrowth and otters are sometimes seen along the riverbank.
