Traprain Law is a distinct upstanding feature in East Lothian's landscape and site of the famous Roman silver hoard. It is a volcanic feature, known as a loccolith which has been subsequently shaped by the forces of ice to give it the distinctive profile it has today. The main path on the north side is steep but provides steady access to the broad flat summit. From here you can get fantastic views across the county and to the north on a clear day, the Grampian mountains can be seen. If you're lucky you will see the wild ponies, but if you do, please don't feed them!
