Normans Law North Fife

Normans Law reaches a height of 285 metres offering splendid panoramic views of North Fife.

Norman's Law is a prominent hill at the very eastern end of the Ochil Fault in North Fife. It sits above the south bank of the River Tay around four miles north west of Cupar.

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 summit of Norman's Law is easily accessible and provides extensive views of Central Scotland, the Southern Highlands 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 in the south.

The Norman's Law hill race is held annually by Fife AC and begins at the nearby village of Luthrie.
