This morning. we departed lodgings in Glasgow, S.W. Scotland and then drove to Largs on the Ayrshire Coast.Largs is a pleasant small town, popular with tourists, and conscious of its Viking heritage. Close to Largs was fought a sea battle in 1263 between the Norse and Scots in which the latter prevailed and thus secured control over Western Scotland and islands. At Largs can be found the Vikingar! Visitor Centre with replica longboat and the Pencil Monument on the coast which records the battle.
