Scald Law Climbing Notes

Darren Jeffrey from UNITED KINGDOM writes:

Very accessible. Park at the Flotterstone car park which has toilets and follow the signs.

Over Turnhouse Hill, Carnethy Hill then on to Scald Law. You can carry on to South Black Hill, East Kip and West Kip from here.

Very easy hills to climb in any weather
