The C6 is a well known and important road, being the only road in to the World Heritage site of New Lanark. It starts on the A73, Hyndburn Road, to the east of Lanark town centre and follows Braxfield Road gently down the hill. It then turns right onto New Lanark Road, and almost immediately gets steeper. The vast car parks lie off to the left as the road winds down the steep valley side, before reaching the sharp hairpin and doubling back in to New Lanark itself. Despite the historic significance of the place, and the signs turning tourist traffic in to the car parks, there are still many homes and businesses down at the bottom of the valley needing access, so the C6 appears to extend right to the bitter end.
