Falkirk Wheel

The Falkirk Wheel is a huuuuge rotating boat lift connecting 2 canals together in Scotland, it’s the only one of its kind in the world >.>

When we parked in the car park up from the wheel and started walking down towards it I thought it wasn’t as big as I was expecting…..but actually when you get right down alongside it’s massive O_o

The wheel raises and lowers boats by 24 meters and turns about every 15 minutes or so….so you won’t have to wait long to see it in action if you miss it turning when you arrive ;)
