Touring sculptures of the Kelpies in Falkirk are set to come to the Scottish Borders in May.
The sculptures are three meters high, one-tenth the size of the original piece they are based on.
Hand crafted by Scottish sculptor Andy Scot, they will be on display in Kelso Square from Friday 15 May to Monday 18 May.
It follows agreement by the three Kelso and District Scottish Borders Council members to use a small amount of ‘Quality of Life’ funding to cover the costs involved.
