A-Z of Fife’s Hills: U

Upper Largo (Largo Law)

Unfortunately there are no hills in Fife beginning with U, but the village of Upper Largo is host to the 10th highest hill in Fife, the 290m Largo Law. A very prominent landmark throughout the East Neuk, the hill rises steeply from the surrounding flat farmland.

There are two main summits to the hill, the southern one which is the visible one when approaching the hill and the higher northern top where the trig point is located. Also of note is the 235m Craig Rock to the east, site of hill fort and well worth a visit. As is to be expected of a hill in a flat coastal area, the views from this extinct volcano are superb.

There is a steep and somewhat muddy path directly up the grassy southern flank from Chesterstone Farm (follow the arrows for the path around the farm). It will take a bit of effort to get up the hill but the rewards are worth it.

If taking a dog on the hill, please note the restrictions on the sign at the car park next to the school / cemetery. The hill is used extensively for cattle and sheep grazing.

The Fife Walking Largo Law page provides more information on the hill along with a circular walk from Lower Largo.
