Famous Falkirk Wheel is an engineering landmark for Scotland.

It opened in 2002 and is connecting the Forth and Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. It has an overall diameter of 35 metres (115 ft) and its design is inspired by a Celtic double-headed axe. It works on the Archimedes principle of displacement which means that the volume of the boat sailing into the ring will be a proportional mass of water so the final combination balances the original total volume, no wonder it’s a great landmark and something Scotland is proud of.
