The Kelpies Guided Tour & The Falkirk Wheel – Wednesday 24 July 2019

Join us on board our executive coach as we travel to see the world’s largest equine sculptures up close.

Enjoy a 30-minute guided walking tour that takes you through the vision of artist Andy Scott and how history and industry impacted on his designing of these breath-taking sculptures.

We even go inside them to marvel at the complexity and the engineering. We then enjoy free time to grab something to eat at the local snack bar and have a browse around the visitor centre. Next, we visit The Falkirk Wheel. Nothing like it has ever been built before anywhere in the world.

In the pre-railway era the Central Belt of Scotland had two main canals. The late 1990s saw a resurgence of interest in the use of canals for leisure and so was
born the idea of the “Millennium Link”, the complete refurbishment of the Forth and Clyde Canal and the Union Canal.

We take you on a 50 minute boat journey where the boat is lifted up to join the Union Canal 35m above and sails smoothly from The Falkirk Wheel onto the Union Canal before returning to your starting point at the Visitor Centre completing a wonderful day of local discovery.

*Details of this tour are correct, we are currently working on an update for our printed brochure, thank you for your patience.
