More pictures from our trip to Edinburgh some time back.
One of our friends recommended that we visit the Falkirk wheel near Edinburgh. Driving, it took us nearly 50 minutes to get there from Edinburgh. It is a great engineering feat connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal and is named after the nearby town.

We got into the boat which was then moved to the docking-pit. We were then slowly lifted to the union canal on the top.

Inside the boat
The wheel was built by Butterly engineering which have now sadly gone out of business like so many companies in the UK.
It was a short ride on the canal and back down again to the basin and my daughter thought it was boring. She was more excited playing at the small playground near the wheel.
