Dundee from The Law

The Law, which takes its name from the Gaelic word for hill or more likely, from Anglo-Saxon hlāw (modern Scots law) meaning a (grave-)mound or hill, is the basalt plug of an extinct volcano. The hill’s summit is 174 metres above sea level. Archaeological evidence of burials suggest that the law may have been used by human settlers 3500 years ago. During the Iron Age it was the site of a Pictish settlement. Roman pottery has been found on the law, suggesting that the Romans may have used it as a lookout post in the first century. (Source)
