Falkirk Wheel - World's Only Rotating Boat Lift

Larger View

Located near Falkirk, Scotland, this rotating wheel, which is the only one of  its kind, transfers boats to and from the higher elevation (35 metres) Union Canal and the lower level Forth & Clyde Canal. It is a fascinating experience to watch one boat going up while other comes down.
