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 19th century 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 hostel will exceptionally remained closed in 2021.

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.
