We visited the Kelpies on the way out of Falkirk this morning.
The Kelpies are 30-metre-high horse-head sculptures depicting kelpies. They represent the heavy horses of Scottish history pulling the wagons, ploughs and barges across Scotland.
Further north we spent time having a tour of Stirling Castle.
Some of the earlier buildings were dated early 12th century and additions were made between the 1400's and 1600's
It is surrounded on three sides by steep cliffs, giving it a strong defense position.
Many seiges occured there as it was the home of royality and the centre of politics before Scotish independence. Our guide could have told stories for hours but we needed to move on to Culloden near Inverness for the next two nights.Read more
