After taking in the Kelpies we decided to walk to the Falkirk Wheel. A four mile flat walk by the canal There were some interesting sculptures along the way making the walk less tedious and upon reaching the wheel I thought it well worth it. A magnificent piece of engineering. Walking the four mile back to the car was less impressive!

This structure is amazing to see. You can pay for a tour that takes you on a boat and rides the wheel. We just ate in their visitor center which had delicious food. My husband is an engineer so he was very interested in seeing this marvel. Although the concept is amazing, it’s not normally in my interests but we enjoyed our visit here. There is self-pay parking in the lots. And a fee for the tour.

Visited here in March 2018 with 2 young children. Visitor Center has toilets and cafe. There is a play area outside and more play activities available in the summer. The boat ride is fine for young children, not scary, smooth and safely undercover. The tour guides could make the tour chat more to suit children but overall it was quite interesting and fairly quick.

The wheel itself is interesting to watch from the ground but not worth paying to go on. Thankfully we had groupon tickets which made it less expensive. We presumed we would experience a boat trip rather than go up- spend majority of time in a tunnel- turn around and come back. The recorded commentary wasn’t particularly interesting. At least the skipper of the boat had a sense of humour. Overall disappointing and not worth the money.

Interesting solution to transport boats through pathways that exist in different altitudes. Impressive to watch it at work!
