Clydesdale is the name given to the valley that carries the middle section of the River Clyde in South Lanarkshire. It stretches from just south of Carstairs Junction northwards to Motherwell and although broad at either end of the valley, it narrows at Hyndford Bridge and Lanark where there are many waterfalls including Bonnington Linn and Corra Linn. The World Heritage settlement of New Lanark is located in Clydesdale which also gives its name to a breed of working horse.
