The Falkirk Wheel, Falkirk

The Falkirk Wheel    Falkirk

The Falkirk Wheel is an amazing vision of modern engineering. Linking historic Forth & Clyde Canal and Union Canal, it takes the place of 11 locks, lifting canal boats from one waterway to the next. Take an exciting boat trip on The Wheel itself. Once lifted, the boat sails smoothly from The Wheel onto the Union Canal. This passes along the aqueduct, through the 180 metre Roughcastle Tunnel and under the historic - World Heritage site - Antonine Wall. Return to the Visitor Centre which has a great cafe with stunning views of The Wheel, a shop, and exhibition.
