Kelpies at Helix park , Grangemouth, Falkirk

Kelpies at Helix park , Grangemouth, Falkirk

The Kelpies  in the Helix Park opened to the public on  21st April 2014  . The park opened with a  night-time artworks exhibition on the theme of Scotland as HOME with spectacular light, sound and flame display, by Groupe F, around Andy Scott’s iconic new cultural landmark. The aim is to provide an iconic landmark and tourist attraction for Falkirk . Drivers on the M9 can’t miss the 30 metre high sculptures as they drive past . Airport Transfers Falkirk can transfer visitors from Edinburgh Airport to the Kelpies in 30 minutes .

The Helix Park features  27 kilometres ( 17 miles ) of cycleways and footpaths , making it an ideal resort for families as well as walkers and cyclists. The Park is on the route of the new John Muir Way which goes from Dunbar , Muir’s home town , to the west coast of Scotland .  The Helix Park in Grangemouth covers a greenspace of almost 300 hectares. Opening up Scotland’s canal network, the Helix will also offer an outdoor recreational area filled with woodland, park, watersports lagoon, pathways, cycleways, and the hugely anticipated 30m landmark scupltures, the Kelpies.

The aim of the project is to transform under-used land between Falkirk and Grangemouth into a thriving urban greenspace , “The Helix”. This includes a performance area, on which large scale events can be held, facilities for watersports provided by the construction of a large lagoon, all surrounded by play areas and high quality pathways.
The Kelpies will be a major tourist attraction in the same way the Falkirk Wheel is , but with no cafe or restaurant facilities visitors may spend little or nothing in the area . The performance area,  which could host large scale events ,  has potential to bring in revenue to the area  , although it is not clear just how much .  Callendar Park  used to host the Big in Falkirk music and arts festival . Recently Falkirk stadium has hosted concerts by Elton John ,  Rod Stewart and Little Mix  .
The final element of the Helix is giant new 
playpark. A set of 
giant wooden tepee-like structures making up the adventure zone  towers over the park.

Councillors were told the Helix Park is considered a “destination” for play and the design had to show it could cope with a large volume of use from children aged from three to 14, be as iconic as the park itself and the Kelpies, use materials in keeping with the park which were also durable and be innovative.

Rhona Geisler, director of development services, said: “This will be one of the prime play areas in Scotland and it is expected to be widely used.

“There was a lot of community consultation and feedback about what would be required.

“This product has been selected because of durability and is expected to last for 40 years.”

She added it is hoped the project, which is being part-funded by sportscotland, will be a “great” attraction for youngsters.

A spectacular night-time arts event called HOME launched both the opening of the John Muir Way and the international launch of The Kelpies prior to their opening to the public . On two evenings, 17th and 18th April, a selection of one-off, specially-commissioned night-time artworks illuminated Helix Park, as thousands gathered round the iconic Kelpies for an extraordinary animation of the colossal 300 tonne, 30 metre-high sculptures backed by a pulsating soundtrack.

Groupe F – the pyrotechnic maestros who worked at Big in Falkirk as well as the Millennium illumination of the Eiffel Tower – brought the monuments to horse-powered heritage to life with a dazzling light, flame and sound performance.

Funding was provided by the Big Lottery Fund Living Landmarks programme. In 2005 the Helix project was awarded one of the top four prizes, which kick-started the £43 million project. The plans include a new 950-yard (870 m) section of canal, which joins the river below the four fixed bridges at a new sea lock. A new bridge under the M9 motorway has been constructed by cut and cover methods, and a lift bridge has been inserted into the A905 road. Two high-pressure oil pipelines which cross the area to feed the refinery at Grangemouth have been re-routed .

The Kelpies have become a major tourist attraction in Falkirk, a short journey from Edinburgh Airport . Phone 07576-127097 for a free quote to the Kelpies , Helix Park , Grangemouth.

Edinburgh Airport has consolidated its position as the busiest airport in Scotland with its report of a 3.5 per cent increase in May passenger numbers.

The airport, owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, said a total of 937,093 passengers passed through its terminals last month.

International passenger numbers are reported to have risen 5.7 per cent year-on-year to 517,543 in total, which the airport said was down to the launch of a number of new routes.

New routes launched in May included three new long-haul destinations linking Edinburgh Airport with Chicago and Philadelphia in the US and Doha in Qatar.

The airport said domestic passenger numbers rose by 0.9 per cent in May from to 419,550 in total.

Chief executive Gordon Dewar said May was “a tremendous month” the airport.

“We enjoyed two of our most successful weeks ever when we launched four international airline routes, something which we’ve never experienced before,” he said.

“We worked hard with our city partners to deliver Edinburgh’s first Middle Eastern route and we’re looking forward to a successful partnership with Qatar Airways who are operating Scotland’s first scheduled Dreamliner.

“The success of these new routes will enhance our global connectivity and ensure we continue to provide our passengers with the best choice possible.

“With the school summer holidays just around the corner, coupled with the Ryder Cup and Edinburgh Festival, we’re looking forward to welcoming many thousands of passengers through our airport over the coming weeks.”

Falkirk hosts Rock the Stadium this weekend

Ronan Keating , Status Quo and 10CC fans are flocking to the Falkirk Stadium for the Rock the Stadium  concerts  this weekend. Ronan Keating  is the Irish singer and song writer who has combined single and album sales in excess of 45 million, holds the Guinness book of records for the amazing total of 30 consecutive Top Ten UK singles and has played live in over 50 countries, and this summer will play for the first time in Central Scotland at the home of Falkirk FC.

Ronan will perform at The Falkirk Stadium on Friday the 21st of June, the first night of the Rock the Stadium weekend.

Ronan said:-

“I am really excited to be performing at the Falkirk Stadium this summer and love playing outdoors in these great venues. What makes it more exciting and something magical is playing to a Scottish audience. I am looking forward to playing with my band and singing my hits as well as some of new songs from my new CD’ Fires.”

. The Falkirk stadium is about a mile from the town centre. The nearest railway station is Falkirk Grahamston. Trains from Glasgow and Edinburgh stop at Falkirk High station. The quickest way to transfer to the stadium is by taxi. Phone 01324-883305 to book a transfer.

Status Quo are the veteran rockers who have been making hits since the sixties. Rick Parfitt and Francis Rossi remain the core members of the band. They have a new single and album out which they premiered on the BBC’s One Show last week.

10cc  hit their peak in the 1970s with I’m not in love and Wakll Street . The band initially consisted of four musicians—Graham GouldmanEric StewartKevin Godley, and Lol Creme—who had written and recorded together for some three years, before assuming the “10cc” name in 1972.

10cc  consisted of  two strong songwriting teams, one ‘commercial’ and one ‘artistic’, but both teams injected sharp wit into lyrically dextrous and musically varied songs. Stewart and Gouldman were predominantly pop-song-writers, who created most of the band’s  most commercial  songs.  Godley and Creme were the predominantly experimental half of 10cc, featuring an Art School sensibility who graduated to video production.

Falkirk Grahamston is the  nearest railway station . Trains from Glasgow and Edinburgh stop at Falkirk High station. The quickest way to transfer to the stadium is by taxi. Phone 01324-883305 to book a transfer.

New video screensavers – Falkirk Wheel

Just over 5 years ago I uploaded a video of  the Falkirk Wheel and since then it has received nearly 300,000 views online . I have now decided to release a unique video screensaver of the Wheel . My video shows the wheel turning and transporting a canal boat from one canal to the other . I have speeded up the video as it takes about 5 minutes for the whole transfer to take place . The Wheel is one of the Millennium projects funded in Scotland.The Millennium Link was an ambitious £84.5m project with the objective of restoring navigability across Scotland on the historic Forth & Clyde Canal and Union Canal, providing a corridor of regenerative activity through central Scotland. A major challenge faced, was to link the Forth and Clyde Canal, which lay 35m (115ft) below the level of the Union Canal. Historically, the two canals had been joined at Falkirk by a flight of 11 locks that stepped down across a distance of 1.5km, but these has been dismantled in 1933, breaking the link. Completion of The Millennium Link project was officially marked by Her Majesty The Queen on 24 May 2002 at The Falkirk Wheel. I have also published stock videos of Scotland on my stock pictures website. Contact Airport taxi transfers Falkirk for details of transfers from Edinburgh Airport to the Falkirk Wheel
