The Kelpies and The Falkirk Wheel

Our first stop on this tour by Tartan Tours Scotland is at The Kelpies. Standing next to the Clyde and Forth Canal and near the River are the impressive 30 metre high horse head sculptures called The Kelpies. Built in 2013 The Kelpies represent mythical water horses and are to represent the horses role in industry, agriculture and  tow horses for the canals. In the first year alone over 1 million people visited these fantastic sculptures. Andy Scott the sculptor designed The Kelpies with a steel structure and stainless steel cladding and each sculpture weighs in at 300 tonnes.

Once finished at The Kelpies, Tartan Tours Scotland move the tour onto the only rotating boat lift in the world. The Falkirk Wheel, which connects the Forth and Clyde Canal to the Union Canal. Opened in 2002 The Falkirk Wheel raises boats 24 metres high. From the visitor centre on the East side of the lower basin there are hourly boat trips which allow you to sample The Falkirk Wheel. Since opening The Falkirk Wheel has attracted 4.4 million visitors of which 1.3 million have taken the boat trip. 

We cater for all your needs, which includes collection, and transportation to both locations, and personal tour guide for the day.

We suggest you allow 3- 4 hours to ensure you make full advantage of this memorable day with Tartan Tours Scotland.
