KATIE-LEE Arrowsmith took this stunning image of the Kelpies sculpture in Helix Park, Falkirk.

The two horses heads, one of the largest equestrian sculptures in the world, were constructed to provide ‘water-borne, towering gateways into The Helix, the Forth & Clyde Canal and Scotland’, according to sculpture Andy Scott.

Completed in October 2013, they opened to the public in April 2014 and have their own visitor centre.

Thirty metres high and weighing 300 tons, they cost £5 million to create.

They are situated beside a newly-developed canal turning pool and extension, which reconnects the Forth and Clyde Canal with the River Forth, improving navigation between the East and West of Scotland.
