Clydesdale’s MSP, Aileen Campbell, has expressed her delight at the Scottish Government’s announcement that New Lanark is part of an overall award totalling almost ?2m.

The money is from the latest round of Historic Scotland's Building Grants to repair eight of Scotland’s most important historic buildings, including New Lanark.

The World Heritage site will receive ?305,105.

On the announcement of the award, Aileen said:

"New Lanark is one of the jewels in Scotland’s tourism crown and I am delighted that it has been awarded this grant by Historic Scotland.

"New Lanark is iconic. It is only one of four World Heritage sites in Scotland and it attracts an extraordinary 400,000 visitors from all over the world each year. We can be justly proud in having this fantastic location on our doorstep.

"Nevertheless, preserving and maintaining such a facility requires careful management, dedication and money.

"This grant is one of the highest awarded and I’m sure it will be used to very good effect. It is testament to not only Clydesdale’s, but also one of the world’s best historic and industrial heritage sites.

"New Lanark is a key element of Clydesdale’s future prosperity. A successful, thriving New Lanark will have a positive impact on the wellbeing of other nearby communities and help boost Scotland’s economy in general".
