The Kelpies are 30 metre high horse head sculptures, standing next to the Forth and Clyde Canal, Scotland and they look absolutely awesome. They form a dramatic gateway at the eastern entrance to the Forth and Clyde canal, and the new canal extension built as part of The Helix land transformation project. The Kelpies are a monument to horse powered heritage across Scotland.
The sculptures will open to the public in April 2014. As part of the project, they will have their own visitor centre, and sit beside a newly developed canal turning pool and extension. This canal extension reconnects the Forth & Clyde Canal with the River Forth, and improves navigation between the East and West of Scotland. They also stand part way along the newly opened John Muir Way.

There's been some debate in response to the video as to whether the Kelpies are in Falkirk or Grangemouth. I'm afraid I don't know but they are magnificent.
