The “Varyag” Monument
Lendalfoot, south of Girvan, South Ayrshire
Varyag Monument,Lendalfoot, south of Girvan, South Ayrshire, Scotland

This monument has a story to tell.

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, the edge of the village of Lendalfoot is 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.
