This year the Scots are honouring him as part of Scotland as Home celebrations, with the John Muir Festival. The international launch of Andy Scott's 30 metre high, 300 tonne sculptures, The Kelpies, will be the centrepiece of a night-time arts event, April 17-18, that will mark the opening of the festival. The Helix Park, Falkirk is where The Kelpies call home and is a befitting location to pay tribute to John Muir, a man that has contributed so much to the conservation of wild areas throughout our world, including the National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glencoe in Scotland.
