The Kelpies tower a colossal 30 metres above the Forth & Clyde canal and form a dramatic gateway to the canal entrance on the East Coast of Scotland.
The Kelpies — Each of The Kelpies will stand up to 30 metres tall and each one weighs over 300 tonnes. The two massive horses’ heads are positioned either side of a specially constructed canal lock and basin – part of The Kelpies Hub.
