One of Scotland’s best-known cultural landmarks are today celebrating their first anniversary.
The Kelpies horse-head sculptures in Falkirk were first unveiled to the public in April last year.
Designed by Glasgow artist Andy Scott, construction work on the 300-tonne, 98ft (30m) steel figures began in 2013.
The completion of the £5million venture marked a significant stage in the £43million Helix project, which aims to transform 865 acres of land between Falkirk and Grangemouth.
The redevelopment was expected to attract an additional 350,000 visitors and add £1.5million in annual tourism spend to the area, according to those behind the project.
A spokeswoman for the Helix Project today said the number of visitors to the area are expected to reach 1million by May 2015.
