The sculptures simply take your breath away and the serene setting on the historic canal, although barely a stones throw from the motorway is surprisingly peaceful.

Yes, they are, just not in the shop, or inside of the Kelpies itself, so if you want to do the tour inside the Kelpies, do not take your dog/s, bar that they are welcomed.
