Falkirk Wheel & the Kelpies

A couple of shots from visit over the past few years to Falkirk’s main attractions in central Scotland.

First of all we have the Falkirk Wheel ‘boat lift’ which was officially opened in 2002 to link the Forth & Clyde and Union canals…

And then we have just the one shot (for just now) of the more recently built ‘Kelpies’ in Helix Park which had opened in 2013 with the two 30m tall structures.  Both are seen here lit up on a cold January evening…

It is my intention soon again to return to both these attractions to see them both lit up at night to get some more photos.
