Sunset at the Pencil Monument, Largs

Built in 1912 to commemorate the Battle of Largs in 1263 when the Scots repelled the troops of King Haco from Norway. A fleet of some 160 longships were caught in a storm as they approached Largs and the ensuing skirmish with the Scots on the shores marked the turning point of Viking domination. Map location.
