Scotland Landmark The Kelpies Completed

Construction work on the world’s largest pair of equine sculptures has been completed.

Steel

The huge horse heads, known as The Kelpies, are 30m (100ft) high and can be seen for miles around.  They are made of 600 tonnes of steel and part of a £43m redevelopment of about 350 hectares of land between Falkirk and Grangemouth, known as the Helix Project.

Sculptor

Glasgow artist Andy Scott designed the structures of The Kelpies, which include 10,000 special fixings, to secure the “skin” of the two horse heads to the steel framework.

It is hoped the site will attract thousands of tourists to the area and boost the local economy. video pressassociation
