Follow the canal west from Kilsyth, and enjoy the now tranquil canalside landscape before reaching bustling Falkirk and it's main attraction - the Falkirk wheel.
Enjoy a lovely walk along the Forth and Clyde Canal, once a busy shipping link between the Firth of Forth in the west and the Firth of Clyde in the east, but now a haven for fishermen and canal boats. Walk by the incredible feat of engineering, the Falkirk Wheel, the world’s only rotating boat lift which joins two canals across Scotland - it has to be seen to be believed!
