I’ve wanted to visit The Kelpies, in Falkirk, Scotland, for some time. Of course I’ve seen photos of them, but wanted to see them for myself. And then, this afternoon, when I was driving along the M9, there they were in all their glory.
I took the slip road and found my way to Helix Park, got out the car and braved the cold and wind to visit them.
And it was well worth it. Designed by sculptor Andy Scott, they celebrate the work horses of the Industrial Revolution, a time when huge horses drew barges along the canals and wagons along rough roads.
Proud and beautiful animals.
Well worth the visit.
