Dundaff Linn on the Clyde, provides the power for New Lanark

A waterfall on the River Clyde, Dundaff Linn is situated just upstream of New Lanark in South Lanarkshire. It is 3m (10 feet) high and was a source of water for mills in the village. Diverted from a weir above the falls into the mill race, water was drawn into the village to water-wheels located under the four cotton mills. The weir has been restored by the New Lanark Conservation Trust to power an original 1930s water turbine and generate hydro-electricity.
