An aerial view of the Forth & Clyde canal, which runs from the River Carron near Grangemouth in the East (where it connects to the Firth of Forth) to the Clyde at Bowling in the West. The canal is connected to the Union canal (connecting Falkirk to Edinburgh) by the innovative rotating lift of the Falkirk Wheel.
