NATO Anchors, Floats, Sinkers Trail
Anchors numbered 1 to 4 are AM11 Anchors, 1st Class Mooring, circa 1957. Attached to 3.75" chains, these would have been used in groups of three or four to moor large ships, tankers or submarines.

A display of 20 pieces of mooring gear, loaned to the community of Fairlie and Largs by Fairlie NATO Base, can be seen at the coastal path between Largs Yacht Haven and Fairlie.

An information board at the Marina car park informs that the anchors are of European and American design, dating from the 1800s to the present day.
