The kelpies are a must see attraction, they are magnificent structures that dominate the landscape. However there is nothing much else to see or do at the site other than visit their information centre and shop. They really need to interact more with their visitors...More

Take waterproofs as the only shelter that's there was closed when I visited .... Which was in the evening I might add but take appropriate clothing and be on safe side as it can take quite a few minutes to walk from Car Park
