Only one hour drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh, Wee Row Hostel is the perfect base to explore these popular cities but you don't have to go far to find plenty to do. On our doorstep is the award winning New Lanark Visitor Centre where you can step back in time and rediscover life of this working Mill village. Explore the industrial heritage, pick up a gift in the Mill Shop, have lunch in the Mill Cafe, play in the park or simply take a seat by the waterwheel and soak up the history of this magnificent 18th century cotton mill village. There's so many things for everyone to do.

Welcome to our hostel

Let's Go Scotland: '..a restored mill workers' dwelling with river views and modern luxuries only dreamed of by earlier occupants'. Discover the impressive 225-year-old conservation village of New Lanark. Situated in a lovely tree-lined gorge, this World Heritage Site has been beautifully restored. Once the largest cotton spinning complex in Britain, but better known for the 19thC pioneering Utopian social experiments of Robert Owen. Visit the Falls of Clyde, the Scottish Wildlife Trust Visitor Centre and live the past with the Annie McLeod experience. Step over the threshold of the village shop and step back in time. Ideal for school parties. Further afield there's the town of Biggar, the David Livingstone Centre, Strathclyde Park and the Time Capsule. Private and family rooms available.

The rooms are very small and there is not even a chair in or in front of the shower to put your clothes. Fortunately, we were allowed to get a room with a window after we asked.
