The Kelpies at night

North of Falkirk alongside the M9 motorway you’ll struggle to miss seeing The Kelpies. These 30 metre high horse head sculptures depict shape-shifting water spirits. They opened to the public in 2014 so I hadn’t had a chance to see them before. After our dusk adventure to the Falkirk Wheel I wasn’t expecting to get the chance but we made it. They are well worth a visit – huge and impressive. Next time I visit I’d like to get there a little earlier at sunset. The coloured lights cycle through the colours of the rainbow. With the black night sky behind I thought the blue lighting made them stand out the most.
