The Falkirk Wheel -
Opened in 2002 to connect the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal.
Originally connected by 11 separate locks which has fallen into disuse
in the 1930s. The wheel has two balancing boat gondolas and uses very little
electrical power the transfer boats over a height of 24 metres. A tunnel
and one conventional lock finally link into the Union Canal.
Some more 'away' pictures,
taken at the end of July in Ayrshire
