Broad Law, Cramalt Craig and Dollar Law
Broad Law is the second highest hill in Southern Scotland, and the highest in the Borders. Its rounded slopes culminate in a broad, domed summit that is unfortunately marred by an air traffic beacon and a nearby radio tower. After a sharp descent and climb to Cramalt Craig, a fine grassy ridge continues to Dollar Law. The return heads down to the reservoir and along the road.
Boggy, heathery hillside lower down, mostly grassy higher up. The ridge is accompanied by a fence line. Descent uses track and return is on minor road.
Limited parking at the Megget Stone; further parking available along the road section by Megget Reservoir.
