A spectacular waterfall situated a half-mile (1 km) upstream of New Lanark in the Clyde valley, Corra Linn is 28m (92 feet) high and, along with Bonnington Linn, is used as a source of hydro-electric power via the Bonnington Power Station. 'Cora' was supposed to be a daughter of King Malcolm II, who leapt to her death here, having been prevented from marrying the man she loved.
Corra Linn was a popular subject for landscape painters, including a work by English artist J.M.W. Turner in 1802. It is overlooked by the now-ruined Bonnington Pavilion, built in 1708 by Sir James Carmichael of Bonnington House to entertain his guests.
