The Kelpies

Completed at the end of October after almost 8 years planning, and one year fabrication and assembly, The Kelpies now reach into the skies above Falkirk & Grangemouth in central Scotland. They are the largest works of art in Scotland, and the largest equine sculptures in the world..

Opened April 21st 2014

The Kelpies form a dramatic gateway to the canal entrance on the East Coast of Scotland.  The Kelpies are 30 metre high horse head sculptures, standing next to the Forth and Clyde Canal, Scotland and they look absolutely awesome. They form a dramatic gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland.

The sculptures opened to the public in April 2014. As part of the project, they sit beside a newly developed canal turning pool and extension. This canal extension reconnects the Forth & Clyde Canal with the River Forth, and improves navigation between the East and West of Scotland.
