Tuesday Travels. . . . .The Falkirk Wheel


I had wanted to visit the Falkirk Wheel, the first rotating boat lift in the world, after hearing about it from my eldest sister who had visited it when she was last in Scotland.

You can get a really detailed description of all that is on offer at the site of the wheel and a bit about its history at this website.

The wheel is a means for moving boats from one level to another without the use of the conventional lock system.

It wasn’t the brightest day when we visited but that didn’t deter us.

This video which is timelapse lets you see a better picture.

From the Falkirk Wheel you can walk along the canal path to The Kelpies.  I had been to the Kelpies but my husband hadn’t so we decided to walk along the path to them.  I will tell you about our walk along the canal path on the next Tuesday Travels.
