The Kelpies Light Up Requests: Please note that due to resources we are currently not taking external lighting requests for The Kelpies until further notice.

Lighting up The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel

As two of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel are frequently asked to support a wide range of events and occasions, from charitable awareness days to sporting achievements, usually by displaying a certain colour on a given date in coordination with other landmarks.


We’re often asked to light up The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel, two of Scotland’s most iconic landmarks, in a particular colour on a given date to support everything from charitable awareness days to sporting achievements.

So as not to diminish the impact and, in turn, the benefits to the good causes we support, we try to limit our light ups to once per month.

Please note: lighting is subject to change as part of light ups in support of world events.
