The Kelpies

The Kelpies are 30 meter high horse head sculptures situated just outside Falkirk. They are very visible from the main road between Glasgow and Edinburgh and are one of Scotland's main tourist attractions. Feast yer eyes!

A grand sight indeed.

A human being at the bottom for scale.

The visitor centre was small, but informative. Among the nicer stuff there was a small exhibit putting the sculptures into context with other famous monuments around the world, such as the Sphinx and the Statue of Liberty.

Naturally, I was skeptical of the Kelpies.
