The Kelpies in Falkirk

The Kelpies in Falkirk are two beautiful horse-head sculptures at The Helix Ecopark in Central Scotland. They make a fantastic day trip from our Edinburgh hotel, located just an hour’s drive away. These enormous stainless-steel structures are a truly awesome sight! They are the largest equine sculptures on the planet, towering 30 metres above the ground and weighing in at 300 tonnes each. 928 individual metal plates were used to create the stunning monument, which was built on-site over just 90 days in 2013.
