After a couple months with the munro summit rate down to just one per month it was time for Valerie and I to grasp any opportunity available to get out there and stretch our legs in this wonderful land of ours! Anticipating our hill rate to be increasing again late February/March, Largo law became our first point of venture, a hill which we can actually spot from our kitchen window a good few miles away.

Had my real summer boots on and I was slipping about on the Law's lower slopes more than I have on many a munro, but soon I gathered traction and caught up with Valerie who was fleeing onwards and upwards :wink: :lol: :lol:

A glorious day right enough, Bod - looks good for a nice winter's walk. Certainly great to have this sort of thing so close to hand - cheers :)

Looks a cracking wee hill, as often as I am in Fife I have not been here. Looks like you picked a great day to get those views.

Nice one. I often mean to head up this hill as I spend a lot of spare time down in the east neuk but the two occasions I've tackled it with the kids we have been thwarted from reaching the summit - firstly by a heard of angry looking cows defending the summit cairn then by the wee lad getting a bought of hay fever before reaching he start of the climb - will put it down on the tick list this year and might even tackle it next week :) :D Thanks for posting
