The Kelpies Tower

The Kelpies tower a colossal 30 meters above the Forth & Clyde canal and form a dramatic gateway to the canal entrance on the East Coast of Scotland. Sculpted by Andy Scott, The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Central Scotland. Summer 2013 saw The Kelpies begin to take shape at The Helix. Rising out of the ground in a feat
of remarkable engineering ingenuity, The Kelpies construction has been a stunning process to observe. From week to week progress has been amazing, and we have been tracking, capturing and sharing that progress with you on our social media networks and here on the Helix Website. Follow their progress as this stunning artwork settles into its new home.

The Helix is a 350ha park built on land between Falkirk & Grange mouth. Built as a Living Landmark, The Helix connects 16 communities across the Falkirk Area. The Kelpies are the central piece of Helix Art and are the symbol of a transformed, enduring new green space.

The Kelpies — Each of The Kelpies will stand up to 30 meters tall and each one weighs over 300 tons. The two massive horses' heads are positioned either side of a specially constructed canal lock and basin - part of The Kelpies Hub.
