A wee local hill was on the cards for this Saturday and with family requiring to go over to Fife for other things Largo Law fitted the bill. This was to be a long awaited return as I first experienced this hill during my first hill race many many years ago, in fact don't go there. This is a very short walk and would be perfect for a young family to get their taste of a hillwalk, but better leave it for a dry day as it could be quite slippy underfoot on some steep sections.

The starting point is just at the back of the school at Upper Largo, there is a large parking area between school and cemetery

The Law is clearly visible the whole way, there is a muddy track at the rear of the parking area

Pass the farm there are notices telling you where to go so you can negotiate the farm and outbuildings

Looking back to the farm at the initial quite steep section

The gradient flattens out after a short while, looking back at the farm

At the summit trig point, there is a slight dip between the South top and the actual summit

Heading back down on a more direct route quite steep in places, to think many years ago I ran down this.

A sign at the car park just before you enter the fields, Just a wee reminder.

Hi Gordon, nothing really at the race, I did ok actually as far as I can remember, the bit that really stands out was the way my legs felt coming off the hill onto the tarmac road to run down into lower Largo to finish at the hotel, they were all over the place, it must have been the speed I was going 😂😂. It was the number of years ago I was really referring too , must be about thirty five😂
