The Heart of Stenhousemuir - sculpture by Alan Potter
Unveiled by councillor Adrian Mahoney, Convenor of Economic Development, Falkirk Council on 14th August 2010. Commemorating Stenhousemuir's history as a centre of the great cattle markets of the 18th century. The use of the word 'Heart' in the sculpture title is intentional implying lovers tryst, but also referring to the cattle trysts as they were known. The sculpture is fabricated in cast iron reflecting the connection with nearby Carron Ironworks. The highland cow was also the logo of the former McCowan's toffee factory established in Stenhousemuir in 1922.
