CPSARC Summits on the Air (SOTA) activation

18:00 hours on Tuesday 28th May 2024 North Berwick Law

North Berwick Law (GM/SS-280) is a fine SOTA peak!

The peak is modest at 178 metres high, and the western car park is about 40 metres ASL.

So, there is a 138-metre vertical distance to climb.

Meet at the North Berwick Law car park; UK Nat Grid NT553843 on the west side of the Law.

To get there take the B1347 heading south out of North Berwick. About 100 metres or so after you pass the Community Centre and High School on your right there is a sharp right-hand bend in the road with a narrow road going straight ahead (left) to the carpark.

Public transport could be used to North Berwick train station with a walk of about 2km to the car park.  From there plenty of well-worn tracks lead to the summit from where there are good views all around over East Lothian and out to some of the islands in the Firth of Forth such as Bass Rock, Fidra, The Lamb, Craigleith and on a good day, out to the Isle of May.  

Many thanks to Ken (GM0AXY) for this parking information who along with his wife Christine (GM4YMM) were the first people to radio from the summit.
