The Kelpies at The Falkirk Helix - Falkirk District

The Kelpies at The Falkirk Helix, Falkirk District, Scotland

These beasts are about 100 feet (30 metres) high and are fabricated in steel tube and plate and weigh about 300 tons each.

You can see from the size of the people walking about how impressively large they are.

They tower over the M9 motorway - between Stirling (right, west) and Edinburgh (left, east).

The Kelpies mark the eastern end of the canal and are the main feature of the new Helix Park, part of the Forth Valley re-generation project.

They are seen by thousands of people every day.
