Walk: Norman's Law fae Luthrie

Fife | Ochil Hills | Half day walk | ★★★

[Approaching Norman's Law from the east]

Norman's Law only stands 285 metres above the Firth of Tay, but it's the highest hill in northern Fife, topped with trig point, view indicator and iron-age hill fort. Pheasant shooting may create a noisy backdrop to visits on winter weekends, but doesn't detract from the superb views along the length of the estuary and south to the Lomond Hills. Much of the Cairngorms, West and Central Highlands are also visible on a clear day - notably Schiehallion.

[Cows watch on at Lower Luthrie Farm, near the start]
