Beautiful sunny day. After leaving the boat from Shetland in Aberdeen I drove to Dundee to have breakfast and then spent some time looking round the city. This trig couldn't really be any easier to get to - there is a small parking area at the top of Dundee Law. The views are excellent - both Tay Bridges and much beyond. The pillar's location is a little spoilt by the ugly building and mast beside, and the condition of the pillar detracts from the experience a little. Nevertheless a nice easy trig with interest - just what I need after a month's solid trigging in Shetland and a night on the boat! Pillar painted white but flaking quite badly; FB faces S; N sighthole open, others plugged; top plugged with ?tarmac. Note that the war memorial nearby is also an intersected station (TP11797). I could also clearly make out the Northfield pillar (TP5182) directly behind the Tay Road Bridge. As I sat in the car munching a sandwich at around 12pm a cameraman and reporter from STV arrived at the car park to film the Lochee Flats to the west from the high vantage point.

First visit. To record FB number. The pillar was completed 16th May 1948 costing 5.9s.0d. Later in 1948 this marker was computed for triangulation as secondary station NO42/6 in the Dundee block. The flush bracket was levelled for height in 1972. This trig point was last maintained by the OS in October 1981. Law Hill is the most prominent landmark in the City of Dundee. There are three features on this summit. A war memorial, a comms mast and the trig pillar. Views across the Tay to Fife and behind to the Sidlaw Hills.
