The Kelpies – Falkirk

Finally got round to processing the images from Falkirk.

It was a rainy day when we arrived at Helix Park but pretty much as soon as we parked up (FREE) the sun came through and didn’t disappoint, entrance again is FREE and helpful staff are there to assist, the site has toilets and mobile eating and coffee vans to tempt the weary traveller.

I have to say and I have been to quite a few places which include the Pyramids that I think this could easily become a wonder of the world, the shear scale and majesty of the structure is awesome, even when you see them from the motorway travelling into Falkirk you simply cannot believe their scale as they dominate the skyline. You can actually have a guided walk up inside too, we didn’t as we have the Husky pack with us but I would imagine that is a spectacle to behold too.

What really brings it home is it practicality too, it’s actually forms part of a canal system  (Forth and Clyde) with a lock between the two Kelpies, absolutely amazing.

The Kelpies name reflected the mythological transforming beasts possessing the strength and endurance of 10 horses and stands 30m high. Created by Scottish sculptor Andy Scott. A graduate of Glasgow School of Art in 1986, Andy has now completed over 70 projects across a wide range of disciplines across the UK and internationally.

I would rate this as a must see, tick list location, one not to be missed
