NS2158 : Viewpoint above Largs

taken 6 years ago, near to Largs, North Ayrshire, Great Britain

Viewpoint above Largs
Viewpoint above Largs
This a good place from which to look down over Largs (the town is visible in the background), although it is not the location of either of the view indicators depicted on the OS map. The seat is near the top of the steps shown in NS2158 : Steps leading to a viewpoint.

The dark conical hill placed centrally in the background is The Knock (NS20286286); the remains of a fort are located there. However, another fort was located on Castle Hill, only about 250 metres to the north-east of the spot where the present photograph was taken: LinkExternal link
