New Lanark is a small 18thC cotton spinning mill village located on the banks of the Falls of Clyde surrounded by native woodlands, where the philanthropist and Utopian idealist Robert Owen moulded a model industrial community in the early 19thC. The imposing cotton mill buildings, the spacious and well-designed workers' housing, and the dignified educational institute and school still testify to Owen's humanism.

New Lanark became a World Heritage site in 2001 and is one of the six UNESCO World Heritage sites in Scotland.
