Discover the Falkirk Wheel

The Falkirk Wheel is the world’s only rotating boatlift, used to connect the Forth and Clyde and Union canals in central Scotland. 

The Falkirk Wheel is the world’s only rotating boatlift, used to connect the Forth and Clyde and Union canals in central Scotland. The wheel is a magnificent, mechanical marvel which is already being recognised as an iconic landmark worthy of Scotland's traditional engineering expertise. Designed to replace a series of lock gates built in the 19th century, The Falkirk Wheel is the showpiece of the Millennium Link project, where coast-to-coast navigation of the canals has been re-established for the first time in over 40 years.
