Dundee Law is an iconic local landmark which is popular among both residents and visitors for its panoramic views across the city and beyond. The mixed woodland and open grass provide excellent opportunities for walking and recreation, watching wildlife in the varied habitats, learning about the geology and history, or just enjoying the view.
This site was formed around 400 million years ago by an underground river of molten rock and carved into its current shape by Ice Age glaciers. There is a rich history with archaeological evidence showing human activity since 3,500 years ago right through to the present day with evidence of an Iron Age hill fort, roman pottery finds and a World War II pillbox.
Dundee Law was designated a Centenary Field in 2016, this programme aims to protect UK green spaces which have a link to World War I to safeguard them in perpetuity for future generations. The War Memorial, designed by Thomas Braddock, was completed in 1925 in remembrance of the Dundee men who fought in the Great War.
The site is approximately one mile from the city centre and main amenities and is within walking distance of Dundee’s railway station. Local bus routes operate nearby and there are two car parks on site. Public conveniences with provision for disabled visitors are located at the lower parking area. There are also a series of paths which cross throughout the site for visitors to explore the delights that Dundee Law has to offer.
