Nothing will prepare you for the scale of these beautiful sculptures. We arrived late in the day & had them pretty much to ourselves. Would have loved to have seen them at night with the lights but definitely worth a visit. The nearby cafe was also a welcome sight after a long days sightseeing

Very easy to get to - right by M9 motorway- this is a modern sculpture of the heads of two Hebridean horse sea spirits. Sculptures are about 30m high and quite imposing and dramatic. You can pay to go inside, but not sure that's of great benefit. Would be good if there was more info on site about the Kelpie... More

Visited yesterdays, not bad bit windy. The kelps are amaxing and very majestic, and well worth a visit. There is a cafe in the visitors centre plus and outside eatery serving burgers etc. The site is free, unless you plan to have a tour, which you can book on line or book in the visitors centre. You can also buy... More

The Kelpies are magnificent. We enjoyed a guided tour. It's not expensive and our guide was knowledgeable. We would have liked to see the Kelpies lit at night too but perhaps another time. Well worth a visit.

Our second trip to The Kelpies but first time we'd taken the tour along with friends up from England. Our guide, Ceara was lovely - so helpful, knowledgeable & willing to put up with us! The Kelpies really are remarkable structures - very impressive inside 'Duke'. Weather wasn't great but there's a nice cafe & shop as well as a... More

Most people go straight to see the kelpies but they're missing out on the Helix. Walk around the grounds with your family, friends and dogs you'll love it.

What a breathtaking sight. One can only look in wonder at this masterpiece of engineering ironwork. The skill of bending and moulding the components to the shape of a pair of magnificent horse heads...left us in awe.

Have been there a few times and have always thoroughly enjoyed it! Didn't expect much as it's a sight seeing location so there's not much to go wrong. However the kelpies are beautiful in my opinion and in a great location / setting and would be surprised if anyone really hated their visit.
