After following the line of the Antonine Wall for a short section, the route picks up the Forth and Clyde Canal towpath which is followed to Bonnybridge then the spectacular Falkirk Wheel before the route leaves the canal before rejoining it to reach Falkirk High Station where the stage ends. Falkirk has all facilities.
