The Kelpies

The Kelpies are 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures depicting kelpies (shape-shifting water spirits), standing next to a new extension to the Forth and Clyde Canal, and near River Carron, near Falkirk. The sculptures were designed by sculptor Andy Scott and were completed in October 2013. The sculptures form a gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension, which reconnects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the River Forth, and improves navigation between the East and West of Scotland. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland.
