Boat in the Falkirk Wheel
Boat in the Falkirk Wheel
This is Archimedes, one of two boats that take tourists on a short journey around the wheel, along the aqueduct and through Roughcastle Tunnel.
The Falkirk Wheel
Opened in 2002 by the Queen, the Falkirk Wheel is a testament to the popularity of canal cruising in the modern era. It connects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal, replacing a flight of locks which fell into disuse in the 1930s and had been built on. The wheel raises or lowers boats 24m (79ft) and takes five-and-a-half minutes to complete a rotation. It is now a major visitor attraction.
