Hiking in Largs, Scotland.

Sunday, July 19, 2009

Today, we enjoyed a hike along the promenade in Largs. We were a little group of 8 persons. The hiking was good despite the weather which changed abruptly. You can see when we walked along the promenade, neighboring islands, ferries and sailboats.
This is the famous Waverley Paddle Steamer.

We stopped at the Pencil monument which commemorates the Battle of Largs from 1263.

After, we crossed Kelburn Country Centre, we had a fantastic view of the Island of Cumbrae and the Marina. At the end of the walk, the weather was better, we could enjoy the landscapes and the view.

It was a excellent hiking.

Did I see a mention of your organisation in the weekend papers?

Glad you enjoyed your day hiking in Largs. Yesterday was indeed changeable, with a heavy shower every half-hour in the morning... and even some pm. But Largs is a nice place, even if the weather is a bit Scottish!

If you enjoyed the views there is another walk, through Douglas Park and up to the trig point, where the views are even better, IMO. It's quite steep towards the end, but not very strenous (there are steps some of the way). You could try that next time.

Or you could visit during our annual Viking Festival,
