Altitude 290m a.s.l
At a height of 290m (965ft) Largo Law is the largest and most distinctive hill in East Fife, commanding excellent views over Fife, the Firth of Forth, and the Lothians beyond. The hill has three tops. The distinctive top that gives the hill its conical aspect from the main road (283m) is not the true summit. The summit lies behind this, slightly to the north. There is also "Craig Rock"(231m) which forms a satellite top on the hills east flank. Largo Law is the core of an extinct volcano which was active between 300 - 350 million years ago ... or in other words ... A denuded volcanic neck dating from the carboniferous era. The famous "Norrie's law" horde of Pictish silver was found here. A nice thing to consider whilst sitting on the top, considering the landscape, squinting your mind. The word "Law" is an auld Scots word for "hill". Take a wander up there, it's lovely.
This summit is listed in Marilyns hill lists.This summit has been climbed in 10 logbooks.
Park at the graveyard (NO 423037). The obvious way up passes between the steadings of Chesterstone Farm before directly ascending the hill's south face.
