Largs Viking Festival
29th August - 6th September 2009

An annual celebration of the Battle of Largs (1263) which was the last major skirmish between Norwegian Vikings and Scots on the mainland.

In July 1263 King Håkon Håkonsson is said to have sailed from Bergen with 200 ships and he was supported with more forces by the King of Man ending up with the battle of Largs. 

It is a celebration of Viking culture, a cultural event in itself, and the connections between Scotland and the Viking countries.
