Come along and see the world’s largest pair of equine sculptures!

Standing 30 metres (100ft) tall, The Kelpies pay homage to the working horses of Scotland which used to pull barges along Scotland’s canals and worked in the fields in the area where they now stand. Towering over a new canal extension which links the Forth & Clyde Canal to the North Sea, The Kelpies are the result of a unique collaboration between the partners and Glasgow-based artist Andy Scott. Almost a decade in the making, the project has transformed 350 hectares of underused land between Falkirk and Grangemouth into a vibrant parkland, visitor attraction and marine hub with the canal and The Kelpies at its heart.

Grab a bite to eat or a souvenir of your visit in the Horsebox, get up close with The Kelpies Tour, or enjoy all the activities The Helix has to offer.

It’s free to come along and have a look. Watch this video and you’ll be inspired to pay us a visit!
