The Monument to the Russian Cruiser “Varyag”
Lendalfoot, south of Girvan, South Ayrshire
There's a long story to this monument.
Basically, a famous and respected Russian cruiser of the early 1900s sank nearby while being towed up the Clyde to be broken up - no-one was hurt - and the people of Ayrshire built this monument on the shore to mark her last resting place.
To help you locate it, that's the edge of the village of Lendalfoot on the left - north - and the road at the back is the A77 between Girvan and Stranraer.
Whilst leaving the site a shower came on and combined with the bright sunlight it resulted in a rainbow.
It seemed a shame to pass up the chance.
Always remember that images taken by 197 aerial photography are available for clients
in a very much higher quality than the small sized compressed images which are shown
as .jpg files on this website.
