The Kelpie Maquettes in St. Andrews from Jul 24th.

Tourism St Andrews are proud to announce the Icons of modern Scottish design, The Kelpie Maquettes, are coming to St Andrews this summer, 2017.

From July 24th, they will be located on the Bruce Embankment, adjacent to British Golf Museum. The 3m high sculptures were hand crafted by renowned Scottish sculptor Andy Scott, and were used as models to create the world’s largest equine sculpture, The Kelpies, situated in Falkirk.  The Kelpie Maquettes tour the world helping to promote Scotland and the Falkirk area as visitor destinations.  

Debbie MacCallum from Tourism St Andrews commented “The Kelpies have become one of Scotland’s most well-loved landmarks, attracting visitors as well as locals to see the eye-catching statues across the country.  Their arrival in St Andrews will hopefully provide an added incentive for visitors to the Kingdom and a welcome boost for local businesses in the town.”

Their installation will coincide with the Ricoh Women’s British Open, the International Photographic Festival, our returning St Andrews University students and their families, and the Dunhill Golf as well as the many cruise passengers and coach parties who arrive on a daily basis to enjoy our fabulous World-class destination.
