Duns Law

About This Route

A short circular hill walk with beautiful views from the top of Duns Law for little effort. The route also passes the site of an old Iron Age hill fort that has a 17th century fort built within it. The latter fort was built in 1639 during the First Bishop’s War by a Scottish army led by General Leslie. It is worth taking the short detour to the orientation point on a clear day.
