Falkirk Wheel

Went for a gander at Airth castle as that is where i reckon we will be getting married in 2005. On the way back we stopped off at the falkirk wheel

In case you dont know what it is :

The Falkirk Wheel boat lift is an exceptional feat of modern engineering and is already being recognised as an inspirational sculpture for the 21st Century.

Designed to reconnect the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals and sited in a natural open amphitheatre at Rough Castle near Falkirk, this remarkable and elegant mechanical marvel is the only rotating boat lift in the world and truly one of a kind.

Truly amazing close up
me and the wheel

damn big it is too
falkirk wheel

Its one of those things that untill you see it up close you dont realise just what a feat of engineering it is. Were going to go back as it was very windy so we didnt go on the boat that actually would take us around!!

Passed by a bit of the Kelvin in Kirki seen what looked like anice stretch running through a park, made a mental note to visit at some point.
