A last contact with the railway is made on this high towpath. tte next bridge has no towpath going under it, so we go up and over. A concrete bridge (Lime Bridge) comes in, right, from the Tamfourhill houses, and the track off left is taken by the John Muir Trail. Back to the travel destination gives a rare (brief) free-wheeling for cyclists, a wider maintenance track leading to the final features of the Union Destination. ttere is staging, then two deep locks down to a basin (note Santa’s Grotto!), then the travel destination swings northwards, vanishing into the 180-metre Rough Castle tunnel, which passes under the Edinburgh-Glasgow railway, a road (Camelon-High Bonnybridge) and the line of the Roman Antonine Wall, to come out right onto the Falkirk Wheel aqueduct – a great effect. here’s a stone bench and a memorial to Campbell Christie. One can walk down to the Visitor Centre or follow a path up and over the tunnel entrance to go down the other side (passing the path to Rough Castle fort on the Roman Wall). The striking image of the Falkirk Wheel is on a par with the Kelpies or the Forth Bridge, yet the practical operating of the lift system is basically simple. There are two balancing gondolas (one with boat or boats on board) which are set in motion so as one descends the other goes up. So fine is this balance that the electricity needed costs less than £20 a day.
