The Kelpies

At the end of the Forth and Clyde Canal, at the River Carron Sea Lock you will find the worlds largest equine sculptures, The Kelpies. Created from Steel with a stainless steel skin by Glasgow artist, Andy Scott, the 300 tonne sculptures tower 30m over a newly created lock at the East end of the Forth and Clyde canal.

Stunning during the day or at night when the structures are beautifully lit they are truly a magnificent sight and are not to be missed.

Night time visits are probably best saved for the winter months, especially for those with restricted mobility, as the car parks close in the evening, and parking in the locality is restricted and will necessitate a long walk in.

If you are in the area a visit to the nearby Falkirk  Wheel is also a must.
