Lammer Law and Hopes Reservoir

Lammer Law, though not the highest of the Lammermuirs, is perhaps the best known, the massive cairn on its summit commanding extensive views on a fine day. This grand circular walk gives a real feeling of open space, and the descent past the Hopes reservoir is picturesque.


Good hill tracks and minor roads; detour to summit of Lammer Law is boggy but could be omitted.

Public Transport

None to start.


End of minor road past Blinkbonny Wood, near Longyester. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
