Visiting the Law

The must-do Dundee visitor attraction

The view from the top is famous, but why not spend a little more time exploring

  • 572 feet above sea level

What to Do

There is plenty to do at the Law. The view from the top is well known or be adventurous and try our Hidden Treasures Trail or the Geocache trail.

 

The paths and steps have been overhauled in 2016, so getting round is easy. 300 steps replaced with improved paths, drainage and handrails. The Law Heritage Project is working on new signs at interpreting the Law and its view.

Explore the paths and trails looking out for wildflowers, birds and butterflies among the trees and meadows. You will come across different views of the city and find relics of different ages.
