Falkirk Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 90 photos
It is very unusual for me to create a page about a place that I can say I have never properly visited but this is the case here. I am sure Falkirik has much to offer and I am not decrying the place at all but I had visited for a specific purpose. After having failed to get a drink in a bar (yes, unbvelievable I know) on the outskirts of town I went and was successful in visiting the Falkirk Wheel.
If you have not heard of it, and I would not be surprised due to it being relatively new, it is a canal boat lift. Yes, you read that correctly. It is a device which raises hundreds of tons of water and steel-hulled boat about a hundred feet to join one canal to another and in my admittedly limited world travels, it truly is one of the most amazing feats of technology I have ever seen.
In the absence of any meaningful photos about Falkirk (excepting the Wheel and the alleged pub), I shall use a generic one of a Scottish flag but in my defence I should point out that it was actually taken in Falkirk. I do like my pages to be accurate!
If you need to know more about the place, I do suggest you check out the Falkirk Travel Page here on VT where you will find much more information.
- Pros:The amazing Falkirk Wheel.
- Cons:Not all the things that look like pubs actually are!
- In a nutshell:Go to see the Wheel and then have a look round.
It is difficult to know where to place this tip as the location in question is pretty much in the middle of nowhere in... more travel advice
