We parked at the car park at the foot of the Law, and made our way up through the well marked path. The path is on the John Muir Way so you could do this walk as a wee detour.
We walked on a beautiful sunny Monday afternoon and it was pretty quiet. We saw some Exmoor ponies on the way up, they are kept for conservation grazing and also a kestrel.
The path rises steeply as you reach the top, at the top there are fantastic views of North Berwick, the Bass Rock and Tantallon Castle. There is a trig point, a replica whale jaw bone and a little building which looked likes a military lookout post. The bench half way up is dedicated to a WWII Comms Engineer so maybe it's something to do with that.
On the way down the ponies had taken over the path so a bit of careful manoeuvring was required to get by!
