Unique structure. Shows that canals still relevant in modern-day Scotland. An engineering structure that will become renowned in the future just as the Kelvin Aqueduct (18th century) or Neptune's Staircase (19th century) are acknowledged as important canal structures today.

A bold statement that Scotland can do "brilliant" given the chance.

We "Falkirk Bairns" are fortunate to have the "Wheel" on our doorstep, we visit often for a walk and a coffee. The staff as well are all most helpful and friendly making each visit a pleasure.
