Falkirk back in Scotland

Now we were enjoying Falkirk and being back in Scotland ☺ Paul though he would play some fun photo time with Woody

There he is in the mouth of The mini Kelpie.....you will later why you would wonder how Woody got up in the real Kelpies....luckily he did not fall in too

The Falkirk wheel which has replaced 18+ locks.....it rotates around from bottom to top or vice versa 

it was a rainy day lol 


Walking along the canal away from the wheel 

going through the tunnel

looking back into tunnel

coming out the other side to follow the canal 

and another lock 

top of this lock 

bottom of next section 

on and on they go lol 

we then drove to see these beauties and the sun was at least shining

a lock was here too 

lovely wild flowers 

getting closer to The Kelpies 

The Kelpies are 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures, standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, and near River Carron, in The Helix, a new parkland project built to connect 16 communities in the Falkirk Council Area, Scotland

and a white swan was between them 


now you see why Woody could not be put up there......30metres

Just love this face ♥

We then drove on to a little steam engine I had read about and was not far from Falkirk

The Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway is a heritage railway in Bo'ness, near Edinburgh, Scotland. It is operated by the Scottish Railway Preservation Society, and operates a total of over 5 miles of track

They had at least 3 steam engines

I stood up on the footbridge 

and waited for the steam to come 

Toot Toot 

We then had a walk around Bo'ness 

The Hippodrome Cinema in Bo'ness near Falkirk is an early example of a purpose-built cinema and thought to be the oldest such building surviving in Scotland.....1912
but not open on the day we were there

Next morning we packed up and drove back to Edinburgh airport to return the hire car and Woody was excited as we had another tour coming up

Dropped off the car and bused it back into Edinburgh

and took our cases to our room for the night 

Yep bathroom 

Woody had his own chair too.....

Sought of view out to those awesome buildings......
We had a great Scottish night but no photos and next head for the next tour.....
xoxoxoxoxo
may have a rest for a day or 3 lol
