Best Answer

The Battle of Largs was possibly the most significant battle in the Scottish-Norwegian wars of the 13th century. It cemented the power of Scotland and eventually led to King Magnus VI Lagaboter (Lawgiver) of Norway ceding the Isle of Man and the Western Isles back to King Alexander III of Scotland.
