We visited the area specifically to see these and were not disappointed. They are quite stunning. We saw them by day and by night as well as taking the guided tour which meant we got to go inside the sculptures. Our guide Pat was knowledgeable...More

Truely another incredible piece of modern art, in our opinion. Obviously all a matter of taste. We didn't get a chance to go inside as we arrived too late in the day, but to stand next to them is awe inspiring. Can be seen from...More

We called here after visiting the Falkirk Wheel. It is very impressive and the expressions in the horses is captivating. However £6 to park seems a little excessive.

The sheer size of them can only be truly witnessed when you are stood next to them. We didn't do the tour but the sandwiches we had from cafe filled a hole and it was worth the detour on our journey home.

To be honest I had in my mind that it will be boring..... how wrong was I?? I loved it, my husband and kids loved it. We had a sunny day and the horses twinkled away. I loved walking around and just taking them both...More

We visited when driving back to England from Glenrothes and it was well worth the detour even with the torrential rain. They are eye catching from afar but stunning up close.. very like chess pieces with one looking stirred by one emotion or another they...More

The view when passing by on the adjacent dual carriageway is nothing to standing right in front of these monsters. Do try to pick as sunny day when you can really see the effect of the sun. Very nice surrounding area. Parking is expensive but...More
