A wonder of the modern world? There's not much about today's crass, brash world to enthuse this grizzled old curmudgeon, but spectacular engineering like the Falkirk Wheel is an exception. 'Any more for the Skylark' takes on a whole new meaning! See the 'world's only rotating boat lift' in action on this easy little two-miler that's full of interest, including a stretch along the north-west frontier of the Roman Empire, the Antonine Wall.

We were in Edinburgh recently visiting our son who lives there and Mike wanted to see the Falkirk Wheel. It was only 30 minutes by train from Haymarket Station and, following advice from my college Principal, a Falkirk man, we went a stop beyond Falkirk to Camelon Station from where it was only ten minutes walk to the Union Inn. Lovely short walk and good way of accessing the Wheel and Mike was not disappointed. He took lots of photographs! The car trip was well worth doing too. An excellent day out.
