Falkirk's Pictures

Falkirk Wheel at the Top
Falkirk Wheel at the Top (QTEK 9100)

Finally the top of the Falkirk Wheel you can just about see a boat in the distance which is just about to descend to the bottom. I have some video of the whole process though I shall spare you all 7 minutes of it you will just have to put up with the three pictures that I have. I have more but I shall spare you.

Falkirk Wheel Half Way Up
Falkirk Wheel Half Way Up (QTEK 9100)

Of course I couldn't possibly go to the Falkirk wheel without getting a picture of the wheel in action and here it is half way up balancing two boats as one goes up and one goes down. Pretty impressive especially from this distance you can hear all the squeaks and clangs which are a little disturbing.

Falkirk Wheel at Rest
Falkirk Wheel at Rest (QTEK 9100)

And today in this action packed holiday we all trekked to the Falkirk wheel. A device finished in 2002 to move barges from one canal to another without the need for locks. In one go one boat can be moved from the bottom to the top and one boat can be moved from the top to the bottom. This is a picture of the device (wheel) at rest.
