The Kelpies at The Falkirk Helix - Falkirk District
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.
From a little further back and showing the River Carron to the north and, to the
right of both of these photos, the new extension to the Forth & Clyde canal.
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.
