Logged Descriptions  (logged by 233 users)ByDate of Ascent
Parking in lay-by 100m W of Pittachope, NO311209. 50m further W on road, then L (SW) up track, on 'Fife Coastal Path' (even though it is almost 2km from the sea), to sign saying 'keep left', but pointing R. So, went R until RH bend at about NO303204, where a stile on L, gives access to a path, which is indistinct through long grass, to a disfunctional stile, then a final zig-zag up. No view in the horizontal rain.Isbjorn24/06/2019
Easy walk from car parking area near Pittachope. Good views.willyross21/09/2018

With Brian R. on a cold, windy winters day. Carried on east from the summit to regain the track back to the car to the north.Play2End13/01/2018
Second hill on a sunny but cold and windy day, with Kirsty and Robert, walking from Pittachope.barnz4812/11/2017
A nice walk up a great hill. Fife coast path car park, then along the Fife coast path, then the left fork across a field, though the gate and then right up a good, steep, grassy path. Amazing views of the Tay estuary from the top, not to mention the rest of Fife.Gill09/11/2017

From NO310209.summitsup28/09/2017
Parked at A913 Ayton Smiddy. Got into conversation with Mike Robertson as I passed the Studio (see A.Dempster's book). He said he climbs the hill almost every day. I walked up and down the hill with him.ChrisR09/09/2017
Took the Walk Highlands route from Luthie https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/fife-stirling/normans-law.shtml for an extended circular walk, really enjoyable.thejackrustles05/04/2017
3rd of 4 Ma today and the best, helped by sunshine. The heavy showers were to the S, view N was good, all the Firth of Tay; a chaotic scene of snow and cloud and sun NW, Ben Chonzie's slopes gleaming white. From the signboard/layby by Pitachope, up/back by the very fine E ridge, knobbly, rock, heather. I noted there are signposted ways up from Luthrie, too.pwheeler21/03/2017
From Pittachope laybykdbennett27/11/2016
Parked at Luthrie village hall at 15.30. Mike a bit tired from Ben Vorlich walk earlier but weather too good to miss. Great views from this hill, looking down the Tay to Dundee and also back to Perth. Company: Mike Stevensoniandesbottes27/08/2016
Early stroll up from the NE. Good path beside the fence on the E side of the hill.amswanston19/06/2016
From layby on road to NE (at NO311209). Approached summit from N. Descended to E. Descent was the better route (no fences to cross). Route and write-up at: http://gayleybird.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/three-and-extra-one.htmlGayle28/05/2016
Weather fair.MountainMac22/03/2016
From the Pittachope layby. The 1:25000 map shows the track leading to the east side, so we went up that way. Then there's an unmapped track off the NW side of the top, that leads over the 243m spot and a couple of stiles to the so-called coastal path above the wood.Pete R20/02/2016
From the north along the coastal path route. Broke from this just before the forest on the right. Up across field, through the gate and then over fence beneath the hill. Then a path goes around and up the hill anticlockwise. Snow and mist and dusk made it not quite so easy.jenx01/12/2015
With Jenx from minor road to NE. Two lay-bys for parking. Follow track to woods then direct across fields to North end of the Law. Followed footprints in snow to summit. No view sadly due to dreek, mist and snow. Back down SE ridge to col and across field to start.nordicstar01/12/2015
Self, Peter and dog. Ascent from the north very easy along newly-fenced path; no issues with cows. Very fine view.Invicta1420/05/2015
Parked in the large space at 310209. An easy 40 minute walk to the summit and back. Solo.bolton07/04/2015

Losing daylight by the time the summit was reached, after starting from the layby just west of Pittachope - good views of city lights in many directions! Dark by the time I returned to the car.martin_hall31/10/2014
parked west of pittachope in layby, track 100m west of this to summit.robertphillips25/10/2014

Ascent from the north. Parked on lane to Brunton near start of track. With JdF.marktrengove09/10/2013
A nice walk completed by my whole family including a 6 year old. Picked up my 1000th geocache at the summit making it a very memorable and special day.Dornorn31/08/2013
From Minor road to North, pleasant half hour walk.nickywood104/07/2013
Parked at NO310210. Lovely views of the Tay.Play2End26/05/2013
Start: Telephone box on A913 at Dunbog. Notes: ascended via Glenduckie. 1:25k map very useful. Descended via Denmuir. Note house built across track on edge of woods shown on 1:50k but not on 1:25k. The associated access marked 'private' can be circumnavigated through woods to west and over a few fences with minimal additional effort. In hindsight it may be even easier to go to the East.raffemeister25/05/2013

Starting from the car park at Luthrie village hall, a long, long walk up farm tracks until the hill proper starts.adrinux14/08/2010
