well it's been a bit of a damp day. But it wouldn't be a bank holiday if it wasn't.
But before you think Scotland was all rain I can assure you it wasn't
And just after my wade through the plunge pool, we were glad to be walking in the forest as it gave us a little bit of shelter.
This is the new metal bridge not far from Dog Falls, the original wooden bridge was swept away earlier in the year when torrential rain caused unprecedented damage to a vast area of Scotland.
The river here is the start point of Dog Falls, I tried to capture the power of the river.
Whilst we were in the area we attempted to grab a few geocaches, not the easiest terrain to navigate. But we managed to get a couple, unfortunately our goal geocache was a little elusive as it involved a very steep hill (mountain in England) and thick heather undergrowth. We are not discouraged though, we'll just have to try again next year. I think Graham will wear his gaitors next time so he doesn't end up with another hitch-hiker ( he picked up a tick).
This is the famous Falkirk Wheel, a truly marvellous bit of engineering. (Note sunshine!) If you can get to Falkirk to see this in action then do it is completely worth it. I was amazed at how quiet it was when it began turning. They also do canal trips so visitors can experience it first-hand. We grabbed 4 geocaches while we were here and also a delicious ice-cream.
