The Kelpies are the largest public works in Scotland
Impressive are these two 30 meter tall horse head sculptures designed by Andy Scott, erected in Grangemouth Park, Falkirk, near River Carron, in The Helix, a new parkland project.
By definition, a “kelpie” is a supernatural water horse of Celtic folklore, possessing the strength and endurance of ten horses. The legend presents them as aquatic beings living in rivers and in Scottish lochs.
Sculptor Andy Scott has marked the landscape of Scotland with his artistic vision which brought The Kelpies to life. Two giant equine statues standing above the Forth & Clyde Canal, the Kelpies are larger-than-life artworks which represent many things.
Hear from Andy about how these metal beasts have taken him on an extraordinary journey and reaffirmed his passion for Scotland, its heritage and its beauty. Scotland; a spirit of its own.
As the saying goes…a picture is worth a thousand words, so enjoy these pictures and videos.
In all scottishness, wishing you only the very best!

Kelpies, impressive for a minute only.
Landscape is the thing.
