My Sunday Photo: View from the Dundee Law

The Dundee Law is an extinct volcano that overlooks the Scottish city of Dundee. It's got quite a view, as you can see in this week's Sunday Photo.

I visited Dundee in July, as part of my ‘Spirit of Scotland’ trip with ScotRail. It’s the fourth largest city in Scotland, and there’s a lot to see and do while you’re there. Because I only had one day in the city, I asked around for some recommendations. One of the suggestions I got was to go up to the Law for a view of the city.

Google Maps reckoned that it was just a mile from the city centre to the Law, so obviously I decided to walk it. And to be honest, it doesn’t look very steep from the bottom…

Let me tell you that by the time I got to the top, I was cursing that decision. Especially when I saw all the cars in the car park, with drivers who were obviously more sensible than I am.

But it was worth it for the view! You can see the city below you, and the river Tay and the countryside beyond . As you can see in the photo above, the clouds were very low and there was rain threatening, so I didn’t stay up there for long. But it’s definitely worth heading up if you are visiting Dundee.

And I treated myself to a big slice of cake when I got back down into town again. I think I deserved it, don’t you?

I stayed at the Apex City Quay Hotel in Dundee – click here to read my review of the hotel.



  1. Wow you’re right – what a view. I’ve always wanted to visit Scotland but it’s too far away especially with 2 young kids who do not travel well. You definitely deserved that cake!
