Legend of the Scottish

Thistle According to legend, the thistle delivered Alexander III's army from an attempted surprise attack by Norse invaders. The enemy was sneaking up on the Scots camp at night, and the soldiers removed their shoes so that they might be stealthier. But one barefoot Viking stepped on a thistle; his cry of pain alerted the Scots of the presence of the army. This legend suggests the Battle of Largs, fought in northern Ayrshire in 1263 between Haakin IV of Norway and Alexander III. The Viking defeat marked the beginning of the expulsion of Norse influence from Scotland.
