Falkirk

About an hour from Edinburgh and home of the amazing Falkirk Wheel. The canal system has been revitalised over the last decade or two. The Wheel raises boats 27 metres in 5 minutes, using virtually no energy. It replaces 11 locks.

The Kelpies. These magnificent sculptures guard the entrance of the canal system leading up to the Falkirk Wheel. The equal of any monumental work worldwide. I don’t know why I haven’t heard of them.
