The location was perfect, just off the M74 and well placed for a visit we wanted to sneak it to The Kelpies, which are situated at The Helix just outside of Falkirk.
Visiting The Kelpies was something I recently added to my list of 50 things to do before I'm 60, after seeing a picture of them on a friend's Facebook post a while ago.
From first sight The Kelpies are seriously impressive. We love any kind outdoor sculpture anyway and these are just breathtaking.
We approached along the canal path and soon got to appreciate just how vast they actually are. They are huge.
Sadly our photo opportunities were blighted just a little by the cherry picker, which is there currently undertaking a maintenance check and clean up, but this didn't really detract from the experience.
We walked all the way round and photographed from almost every possible angle, with a few selfies thrown in for good measure ...
... and a picture of Martin giving one a good rub on the nose 😘
There was a map in the visitor centre showing all of the other local attractions around Falkirk and it is definitely somewhere that we will try and get back to. We'd particularly like to see The Falkirk Wheel.
