The Kelpies sculptures are the largest works of art in Scotland, and the largest equine sculptures in the world. 
Sculptor Andy Scott was on hand for the opening, along with Duke, a Clydesdale horse which was one of the models for the 30m (100ft) works.
More than one million people have visited the Kelpies since they were completed in April 2014.

The pair of sculptures are made from 600 tonnes of steel and more than 10,000 special fixings, and tower over the nearby M9 motorway.
The Kelpies Falkirk were open to the public in 2014. An exhibition of local schools kids artwork celebrating The Kelpies and The John Muir Way will also be unveiled by Kelpie artist Andy Scott. The artwork was on display inside The Kelpies for three weeks afterwards for tour guests to admire.

The completion of the £5 million venture marked a significant stage in the £43 million Helix project, which has transformed 865 acres of land between Falkirk and Grangemouth. The Helix is a leisure park featuring walkways , a lagoon , children’s play area and the Kelpies

The Kelpies feature on the new £50 note

The Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies will feature on the new Bank of Scotland polymer £50 note, which will enter circulation in July.

The landmarks are pictured on the reverse of the note, which has also changed colour from green to red.

A new UV feature depicts a horse pulling a canal barge, representing how horses shaped the geographical layout of the Falkirk area.

The new design is part of the bank’s ongoing bridges series of notes.

The notes feature the poem Steam Barge, written by William Muir after he saw the newly-invented steam boat passing through Scotland’s Grand Canal.

Scottish Canals CEO Catherine Topley said she was “delighted” that the attractions would feature on the new note.

She said: “This decision by the Bank of Scotland pays homage to Scottish Canals’ transformation in central Scotland over the last 20 years.

“The note also complements the appearance of The Falkirk Wheel in the United Kingdom’s passports, recognising its significance to the nation’s infrastructure.”
