See how art and engineering join forces to create these two incredible and unique Scottish monuments.
The Kelpies sculptures - The largest pair of horse sculptures in the world are made from 300 tonnes of steel.
Helix Park and the Forth and Clyde Canal - Explore this park or sit in the cafe and spend your time enjoying views of the Kelpies.
The Falkirk Wheel - A boat lift that’s as exquisitely designed as it is impressively engineered.
Scotland is where scientists invented the television and radar. It’s where creatives imagined Peter Pan and the first picture postcard. It’s a place where technical ingenuity and artistic innovation thrives.
So on this tour, we pass the kilts, castles and whisky and give you a modern Scottish experience. You visit the Falkirk Wheel, the only rotating boat lift in the world. And you experience the Kelpies, a beautiful and world-renowned contemporary sculpture.
Join this tour and learn about state-of-the-art Scotland.
Students, seniors over 60, and children between 5 and 15 (unfortunately, we don't carry children under 5 years old)
Leaving George Street, the first stop of your tour is the Kelpies. These amazing 30m-high horse head sculptures hark back to the history and heritage of working horses pulling barges on the canal. They’re also a stunning example of modern design and ingenuity.
We’ll take a short walk through the Helix Park to appreciate the impressive beauty of the Kelpies up close.
From here, it’s a short drive to the Falkirk Wheel. This unique engineering feat was built to celebrate the millennium and restore the link between two of Scotland’s major canals. The result of this ambitious plan is the world’s only rotating boat lift; raising boats up 24m between the two canals.
On our tour, there’s no time to take a trip on the boat lift itself, but on most occasions you can watch it in operation. You’ll also get a chance to see the exhibition and visitor centre before heading back to Glasgow.
