Kelpies, Scottish Landscape


Kelpies, Scottish Landscape


A Landstory correspondent was in Scotland and discovered an amazing monument, called the Kelpies, dedicated to the contribution of horses in transportation throughout history.

It was completed in 2013 by artist Andy Scott, and set in a park next to canals that used horses to pull the barges along the waterways, also with other early forms of transport.  It's a massive work of art, made out of fabricated steel and standing 30m high, it's illuminated at night and is visible for miles around.

​Another beautiful example of landscape architecture designed to surprise and delight!
