Viking ‘Battle of Largs’ Monument, Largs, Scotland, 8.9.18.


‘The Pencil’ monument is to commemorate the Battle of Largs in 1263, considered by many to be the last Norse assertion of rule; the final ‘Battle of Vikings’. The monument evokes the defensive towers found in Ireland during this period. Built in the early twentieth century, it stands approximately where beached Viking vessels landed, although the battle itself took place slightly further up the coastline.
