The Falkirk Wheel is the world’s only rotating boatlift, which is used to connect he Forth & Clyde and Union canals in central Scotland.

The Falkirk Wheel is a magnificent, mechanical marvel which has been constructed to 21st century, state-of-the-art engineering. It is already being recognised as an iconic landmark worthy of Scotland’s traditional engineering expertise.

Designed to replace a series of lock gates built in the 19th century – long since demolished and replaced by housing – The Falkirk Wheel is the showpiece of the Millennium Link project where coast-to-coast navigation of the canals has been re-established for the first time in over 40 years.

The Helix Park is The Home of the Kelpies – the largest equine sculptures in the world. Standing at 100ft tall and weighing more than 300 tonnes It is located between Falkirk and Grangemouth. Tourists  flock to the iconic structures, and have transformed the area into a five-star tourist destination.
