The story of Robinson Crusoe was (rumour has it in the local fishing community) based on the experiences of Alexander Selkirk, who was born and brought up in Lower Largo. There is a statue of ’Robinson Crusoe’ aka Alexander Selkirk in the village.
The village nestles around a small harbour now primarily used by pleasure craft. From here you can step on to miles of golden sandy beach. There are plenty of colourful local hostelries within easy reach.
