Canal Encounters is a free month long celebration of the Forth & Clyde Canal as part of Scotland’s Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21. The trail – running for 4 miles from the iconic Kelpies to the world’s only rotating boat lift The Falkirk Wheel – will bring together virtual reality and real life to celebrate the heritage, environment, and communities of the waterway.
Audiences can explore engaging artworks along the canal in their own time with family, friends and their fluffy legged companions. The free Falkirk Explored App will add to the fun with interactive games, audio guides and AR animals in a digital trail. The core digital and physical trail will be augmented with a varied programme of family friendly live activities, workshops and walks.
