The Falkirk Wheel is situated at Rough Castle near Falkirk, and is the worlds only Boat Lift. Constructed for the Millennium Link Project and completed in 2002, the Wheel is designed to connect the Forth and Clyde Canals with the Union Canal. Also down by the Wheel is the Helix Project which is symbolized by the two Horses or Kelpies Sculpture in the foreground of the second photo.
