Visit the Kelpies, Grangemouth, where the Forth & Clyde Canal meets the Firth of Forth by boat or canoe.
This is one of two new Silver Propeller locations in Scotland at the Eastern and Western ends of the Forth and Clyde Canal. The Kelpies and the Forth and Clyde Extension – the Queen Elizabeth II Canal – linking the canal to the Firth of Forth were officially opened by the Queen on 5th July 2017.
The Kelpies are a pair of 100ft high horses’ heads, representing the heavy horses which pulled boats and cargo along the towpaths of the Forth & Clyde and Union Canals in their heyday.
A photo in front of the Kelpies would be good proof of your visit (the basin in from of the sculpture is the Silver Propeller location, not the end of the extension itself, to allow boats to wind safely).

Together we can protect and restore our waterways; the UK’s 6,500 miles of canals and rivers need your help.
