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, The Kelpie Maquettes will be in St Andrews located on the Bruce Embankment, adjacent to British Golf Museum, behind the famous Royal and Ancient Golf Clubhouse and within sight of the stunning West Sands Beach.
The three metre 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.
Tourism St Andrews, the newly formed Local Tourist Authority for St Andrews, is working to ensure St Andrews is recognised as a global destination of choice. By bringing The Kelpie Maquettes to the town, it hopes to give visitors a unique experience as well as offering the local community the opportunity to participate in a programme of events themed around the beautiful sculptures.
Tourism St Andrews is working with partners across St Andrews to deliver a full programme of exciting events, working with MUSA and the British Golf Museum there will be children's activities and workshops over the Summer and the opportunity for secondary school children to sample working in tourism workshops. Which have been funded by the Community Trust.
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.
