Around the summit cairn of Norman's Law are the remains of an Iron Age hill fort and settlement, owing to the hill's commanding views over the surrounding countryside and the defensive advantage provided by the steep slopes surrounding the summit. The hill fort is a designated scheduled monument.
The summit of Norman's Law is easily accessible; the shortest ascent is from NO310209, about a mile west of the village of Brunton; a waymarked path to the summit starts in the village of Luthrie NO331196. There are extensive views of Central Scotland and the Grampian Mountains. On a clear day, one can see as far as Lochnagar to the north, Ben More (Crianlarich) to the west and the Moorfoot Hills to the south.
The Norman's Law hill race is held annually by Fife AC and begins at the nearby village of Luthrie.
Norman's Law reviews
Run, walk or cycle, the paths around and up to the summit are great. Plenty exploring to do and the views at the top are great. Busy wee hill, love it up here on a nice day. more »
The views are stunning and well worth the hike! There is a small lay-by car park nearby and the hike itself is not too rigorous. more »
Wow . What a view out over the carse and the river. Watch out for the path of the the hill itself. We missed it and ended up chatting with the local young highland coos. Not a problem as lots of options to the top.
Very nice walk with beautiful views... It gets a little challenging near the top but it's worth the effort. Once you reach the top you can admire an amazing view of Fife, the Tay and Dundee. Park your car next to the village hall in Luthrie and follow the signs for Norman's Law. It's quite well signposted. It takes about 2 hours to get there and back.
