The Heavy Horse - Baillieston, Glasgow

Heavy Horse sculpture, Easterhouse, Glasgow, Scotland

Taken from over the waste ground just south of the M8, accessible from Springhill Parkway.

This statue of a Clydesdale horse sits right next to the M8 motorway on the eastern approach to Glasgow, at Junction 9 near Baillieston and Easterhouse.

You can see the slip roads to and from junction 9 of the M8, just to the east.

Ground level photos give some idea of the size and realism of the beast.

It's about 15 feet (4.6 metres) tall and is made from galvanised steel rods of various thickness, welded together.

It's a hollow shell so light, wind and rain pass right through it.
