Largs Pencil - A monument to the Battle of Largs
Largs, North Ayrshire
The monument was built as a marker for the site of the Battle of Largs in 1263.
The battle was won by the Scots and prevented the Vikings from invading the mainland from the west.
Over the next 20 or 30 years they were hounded out of the western isles as well. No offence intended to any Scandinavian cousins reading these pages.
This view is looking almost directly into the sun, to the south-west.
The flag at the bottom right indicates a Safe Bathing Award for the area.
The monument was built in 1912, so it took them a long time to get round to it. Nearly 650 years after the event seems a little tardy.
