Clydesdale is a region in the southwest of Scotland. It's the catchment and upper course of the River Clyde, historically with many water mills powering local industry, and the Lanarkshire coal mines. This industry was densest in the lower valley, towards Motherwell and Glasgow; but even here there are reaches of sparsely populated unspoilt moorland. The upper valley was never much industrialised. The main railway from Carlisle to Glasgow snakes along the valley, while A74(M) strides over the moors west of it. The main visitor attraction is New Lanark Mills.
