Visited North Berwick with my wife on a day trip on Saturday 15th September 2018. On entering North Berwick and catching our first glimpse of the law we both commented that we would have to climb it at some point during our visit, and we...More

15 minute walk from law car park to top with a few steep sections. Great view from top. Spent some time enjoying the view with a picnic. Nice afternoon

This is the ultimate Marilyn (500 + feet) its steep and a good effort to climb but utterly rewarding. Archeology fascinating, views fabulous but it might be best when the top is lost in the mist and it seems like you are all alone and...More

If you are staying in North Berwick for any longer than 24 hours you must walk, or in some bits climb, up the Law. We are all in our late 60's, early 70's, and managed it in about 40 mins taking our time. Kids could...More

We are staying at the bottom of the Law and I couldn't look at it for more than 24 hours without wanting to get to the top with my two dogs. The side we look at is very sheer and so walking up on the...More

So beautiful at the top by the whale bone. It is tiresome walking up but is worth it eventually. The view is overlooking all of North Berwick and the sea it is truly astounding and rewarding!
