Largo Law is a great little hill overlooking Fife's coastline. It's small - a mere 290m - but much loved by the locals and well worth seeking out. Start at Lower Largo, which has good bus connections and begin by exploring Keil's Den. Head over to Largo Law for some great sea views, and finish in Upper Largo, which also has plenty of buses.

Dangerous Landowner.

I heard there has recently been trouble involving the police as regards access to the Law. Evidently a dangerous bull is/was kept in the field through which the path runs and a walker was seriously injured. Anyone know if this has been sorted out?

What do you think?
