Another trip to the Falkirk Wheel


Another bike trip along the Union Canal from just east of Linlithgow to the Falkirk Wheel, a round trip of just over 27 miles. Click on the picture and you can see a barge exiting the waterway after being lifted up by the Wheel.

No, we'd already been well and truly fleeced at the Falkirk Wheel for a coffee and an ice cream. There was no money left!!
