The Kelpies

Scotland has a new tourist attraction. Standing at a height of 30 metres beside the M9 motorway are "The Kelpies", standing guard at the entrance to a new section of the Forth and Clyde Canal.

The artist Andy Scott based the sculptures on the heavy horses that would have once been commonplace throughout Scotland.

Each figure is made of steel and weighs over 300 tonnes.
