Slow and slippery on Largo Law

Route: Largo Law, from Upper Largo

Sub 2000s: Largo Law

Date walked: 29/11/2019

Time taken: 1.5 hours

Distance: 3km

Ascent: 220m

We'd seen Largo Law across the Forth on numerous occasions over the past year, and had driven past the foot of the hill a few times on the way to the East Neuk. But we'd never actually stopped to climb it... time to put that right.

We parked at Upper Largo cemetery and followed a track for the first half mile to Chesterstone Farm. The temperature was only just above freezing but the sun was quickly thawing the overnight frost, exposing some pretty muddy spots underneath - we were glad to have proper boots on.

After scooting around the side of the farm, the steep southern face of the hill loomed large ahead. The photos below are deceptive: it's a very steep and slippery climb to the first (lower) top, though the views looking back were more than worth it.

Looking past Craig Rock from the southern top:

The northern top is the true summit, separated by a shallow depression with a rather wobbly stile. View towards the north top:
