The Falkirk Wheel , opened by the Queen in 2002, has celebrated its 10th anniversary. The Wheel is one of the most impressive feats of engineering I have ever seen . The Wheel’s iconic design has attracted visitors from around the world and it has become one of Scotland’s most popular tourist attractions . Princess Anne travelled to the Wheel to join the celebrations that Scottish Canals, the public corporation which has taken over from British Waterways in Scotland, was inaugurated.The Wheel enables canal boats to transfer from the Union Canal to the Forth and Clyde Canal. Cycling along the canal is great fun and totally safe. From Falkirk you can cycle all the way into Edinburgh along the canal path.
