Good day friends,
It’s been a while since I shared a post on our Grand Tour of Scotland. I think today is the day.
We continue our visit in Dundee. We headed up to Dundee Law. The views was breathtaking.
The Dundee Law is a hill in the center of Dundee. It is what remains of a volcanic sill and, it is the highest point in the center of Dundee. With a large war memorial at its summit, it is the most prominent feature on the local skyline.
Dundee Law comes from the Gaelic word for the mound. Lava was forced through fissures in old red sandstone from a volcanic area miles to the west. Actions by subsequent rain, wind, and ice movements eroded the sandstone. The glaciers of the ice ages deposited more debris around the base creating a crag and tail. The shallow gradient of the slopes on the north and eastern sides of it suggest a northeasterly movement of ice flows. The hill’s summit is over 500 feet above sea level.
On 16 May 1925, a war memorial for the fallen in both World War 1 and 2 was unveiled on Dundee Law.
Thank you very much for taking the time to join me on my travels. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I did.
Till next time, safe travels and keep dreaming.
Have a fabulous day.
