A Local Landmark 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿📍🗺🚗
Oct 2021 • Friends
In Lower Largo you will find a fitting monument on a beautiful building within the village, in hommage to Alexander Selkirk, he provided inspiration to Daniel Defoe's character Robinson Crusoe. Alexander Selkirk was born in Lower Largo in 1676 and this monument marks his birthplace. His adventures lead Daniel Defoe to write about his life standed on a desserted island for years. The monument pays hommage to Alexander. The village is a special place of interest too. Well worth a visit to surround yourself in a literacy marvel.

Robinson Crusoe
Jul 2021
Stumbled across this statue on the search for a toilet. Hidden amongst the houses in the twisty tight roads of Lower Largo but well signposted though which is why we spotted it. At the end of the road there was a car park with (sadly for us) closed toilets next to the beach.

We actually stayed in the house below the statue. Very pet friendly, very spacious, 5 mins to beach, car park, coffee wagon, great for open sea swimming, lots of people come here for it. There’s a local shop & pub Blazers plus Caledonian Hotel, glorious food.
15 mins in car from Elie, local buses available to visit other towns

Nice statue

Saw this signposted on the way down to the car park but missed the statue. Finally found it when wandering around the village. Interesting bit of local history but unless you are all ready visiting the village I would not go our of my way

Worth The Diversion
Aug 2020
The driver who took us to St Andrews suggested a diversion to show us an unlikely statue. In the delightful town of Lower Largo, on a fairly narrow street and mounted on an outside wall of a normal house there is a statue of the boyhood story hero, Robinson Crusoe. Well worth the diversion, the house (Not the original) stands where Alexander Selkirk was born, the actual figure who lived alone on an Island for over four years. It is a very good statue.

Distraction on drive to St. Andrews.
Aug 2020
An interesting statue of Robinson Crusoe, the eponymous hero of the novel by Daniel Defoe. If you’re wondering about the connection to Robinson Crusoe, then it’s the birthplace of Alexander Selkirk, who provided inspiration for Daniel Defoe. The statue can be found above the front door of a private house opposite Weaver’s Cottage holiday home, about 50m east of Durham Wynd. Not an amazing thing to see, but a funny distraction on a long drive to St. Andrews.

Quite interesting

Came to see this today, as I remember seeing this many years ago as a child. It was easy enough to find. The plaque is interesting telling all about it.

Of interest to anyone who has read Robinson Crusoe.
Nov 2019
I suspect that most non-Scots have never heard of Alexander Selkirk, yet as kids at school in Scotland we were all told that he was the original Robinson Crusoe as he was the inspiration for the novel.

As such, this little statue which sits in a niche on the wall of Selkirk’s birthplace, will be of interest to people who have read the book.

As previous reviewers have mentioned, this “main” street is distinctly on the narrow side, so you should park up beforehand and enjoy a gentle stroll.
