Corehouse Estate and Corra Linn Falls (Lanark-ish)

  • Feb 23, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

One of our favourite walks. With ample parking in Kirkfieldbank village, walk along "The Avenue" path which follows the banks of the Clyde for 2 miles to the Corehouse Estate, of which this used to be the main entrance but is now overgrown and traffic-free except the occasional horse.
We'll then walk around Corra castle and drop down beside the Corra Linn Falls until it flattens out at the riverside with several viewpoints along the way. After a good downpour these falls are particularly thunderous.
We'll then climb back up (across the river from the New Lanark visitor centre) and back to the cars at Kirkfieldbank. Total distance just over 5 miles easily completed under two hours at a leisurely pace still with time for sightseeing & photographs of wildlife and old ruins.
This can get very muddy underfoot as it was today, but the views are actually better in late winter or early Spring so you can still see through the trees further for longer before all the greenery appears and spot the occasional deer, buzzard, peregrine or heron.
This is a local haunt, but it is the path less travelled from outsiders as they tend to head for the to visitor centre on the north side of the river so it's nice and peaceful.
Dogs are welcome, but as there are many sharp drops into the fast flowing Clyde below we usually keep our two on the lead until we're at the base level so they don't go chasing birds off cliffs!
Afterwards we could drive 3 miles in convoy to the lovely New Lanark Mill Hotel on the north side for afternoon tea etc. and we can part company there leaving people time to explore that side of the Clyde & visitor centre if they so wish.
See link below for this trek we completed today, complete with photos (but after a long lie we were losing the light):

Update:

MEETING POINT POST CODE: ML11 9LA

For those requiring public transport, there are direct trains to Lanark from Glasgow Central (Low Level) and beyond from Milngavie and Dalmuir.

First Scotrail (terminates in Lanark)

9.48am Glasgow Central -> Lanark (54mins) it's then a 1.5 mile walk downhill all the way.

Alternatively various buses run right through Kirkfieldbank village from Lanark to/from Hamilton although the timings are a bit unfortunate for an 11am start (this will be considered for the next walk!!)

Stuart's Coaches alight at the village shop next to the now-disused Riverside Inn

17 (9.45am) from Lanark to Hamilton via Clyde Valley (6mins)

17 (10.30am) from Hamilton to Lanark via Clyde Valley (38mins)

Whitelaw's Coaches
258 (10.00am) from Lanark towards Lesmahagow (9mins)
259 (10.20am) from Lanark towards Glespin (8mins)

If in doubt, your best bet timing-wise is probably to car share!!

    Great walk today. Good seeing everyone, even Mr Sunshine who came out after a small snow flurry at the start. Good job Andy and I'll need to remember to bring my suit the next time you organise a walk with food after ( very posh LOL).

      I must admit The Mill did themselves proud.

      1 · February 23, 2013

    • Andy C.

      Yup. We're sending them a personal thanks for pulling the stops out to accommodate us.

      1 · February 24, 2013

  • Andy C.

    Hi guys, old & new. Thanks for making the effort to come out to the stix for our first Hosting and see what we have to offer! I hope you all enjoyed yourselves. If you liked it please leave feedback and/or rate it and it'll encourage us to map out some more suitable local walks.
    Pauline and I have loads of ideas as we go a-wandering up and down both sides of the Clyde regularly. We just need to pick our favourite spots, piece a few wee routes together into around 5 mile chunks (and longer loops for the more adventurous amongst you) to formalise them, map them out to get distances & terrain so everyone knows what's involved.
    And if there were parts that you didn't enjoy, please let us know and we'll be wary of that the next time.
    Thanks again.
    Until next time.

      A valet to clean and polish my boots afterwards would have been nice, but other than that you got it pretty much spot on:-)!!!!

    February 21, 2013

  • Lesley S

    Hi looking for a lift from West End/glasgow if possible

    February 21, 2013

  • Susan C.

    At the risk of sounding like a complete wimp, the references to "dropping down and climbing up", would a complete novice manage this one?

    February 21, 2013

    • Alan G.

      All my walks are novice walks its just sometimes the terminology makes it sound hard than it is, but its easy.

      February 21, 2013

    • Pauline

      Hi susan, do this walk regularly. The climbs are very gradual.

      okies ,thank you for letting me know.

      January 8, 2013

  • Andy C.

    If anyone had problems clicking on my link in the descriptor, it looks like I forgot to make it public! Whoopsie.
    Rectified now (I think) so you can give it another go.

    January 6, 2013

  • Pauline

    I will pop into the mill tearoom tomorrow to give them a fare headsup. Just to ensure they can accommodate the numbers :)

    January 6, 2013

  • Andy C.

    Woah, I only just suggested this before dinner. I come back and not only is it live, but we have 16 attendees! Not bad for my first attempt!

    For those requiring public transport, there are direct trains to Lanark from Glasgow Central (Low Level) and beyond towards Milngavie and Dalmuir.

    Various buses run right through Kirkfieldbank village from Lanark, and it's best to alight at the village shop next to the now-disused Riverside Inn:
    17, 41 or 317 between Lanark & Hamilton via Clyde Valley
    258 from Lanark towards Lesmahagow
    259 from Lanark towards Glespin

    Hope this helps.

    January 6, 2013

    • Andy C.

      Hehe, that won't be necessary Dominika!
      There's also parking available for around 10 cars off road plus more on the "main" Kirkfield road if required.

      January 6, 2013

    • Alan G.

      Andy honestly if you want host as many as you like go for it I have it really good fun
