The Pencil monument is situated by Pencil Beach near to Largs Marina.
Built in 1912, to commemorate the Battle of Largs 1263, when the Scots defeated King Haco of Norway’s troops on the shore at Largs, after the 160 long ships got caught in a storm.
Largs is very famous for its Viking connections and if you want to find out more try the Viking Experience interactive exhibition at Vikingar.
