The Kelpies sculptures in Falkirk were open to the public in April last year. Glasgow artist Andy Scott designed the Kelpies, with construction work on the 300-tonne, 98ft (30m) steel figures starting in 2013.
The completion of the £5 million venture marked a significant stage in the £43 million Helix project, which aims to transform 865 acres of land between Falkirk and Grangemouth.
The redevelopment was expected to attract an additional 350,000 visitors and add £1.5 million in annual tourism spend to the area, according to those behind the project.
The number of visitors to the area are expected to reach 1 million by May 2015 .
The Easter holidays have seen bumper crowds coming to the Kelpies with families coming from all over Scotland to see the sculptures and take the tour.
. Work has started on a new visitor centre at the Kelpies which should be completed in a few months time
