"The Kelpies" are impressive.
30m high

Just a shame they have been built hard up against the M9 motorway
with huge pylons running behind along the opposite side and the river Caron
on a third.
They were originally meant to sit either side of the Forth/Clyde canal where
it meets the river - but the pylons prevented that - so they have moved
their spot slightly and built a bit of 'false canal' between them to show
what it should have been.

The idea is great and the structures super (they aren't quite finished).
Just a shame the planners hadn't used a wee bit of forethought.

Pity about the location, although one must admire the pieces themselves for what they are...

No more of a distraction than the Angel of the North, I suspect.

And far less of one than a minor accident usually manages to be.

I'm feeling cynical...

Kaybee. I have to agree that the location is not that great for the Sculptures to be snapped, with the given limitations. However the bit of "false canal" you mentioned is in fact the new lock and the extension of the canal further down and parallel to the River Carron where it joins the Carron past the Bridge Kerse Bridge (A905). The Kerse Bridge has been transformed in a Folding Bridge. With these changes to the original layout boats have easier passage from the Forth to the Forth and Clyde Canal and reverse, as otherwise the low Motorway and Kerse Bridge blocked the passage most of the day. I attached a Link to an image I took the otherday. Showing the new stretch of Canal. another view Still hat to remove the irretating pylon and overhead wires. You picked a nice time for the light.
