The area surrounding the village of Luthrie offers some great walking.
This route takes in both the countryside and Norman’s Law and I would consider it being a Grade 3 route.
The route begins in Luthrie. There are plenty of place to park your car but please be considerate of residents when parking. Leaving the village you follow the farm track out into the countryside.
There are a number of working farms in this area so be aware of farm vehicles when walking this route. this route isn’t suitable for walkers with limited walking abilities.
The route weaves its way along towards the strangely named hill of Whirly Kips where the path turns right passing Denmuir Hill and heads towards Norman’s Law.
Norman’s Law is a nice hill to climb and can be approached from several different points. The starting point for my route is slightly steep and guaranteed to get the heart pumping bit more.
The view from the top is excellent on a clear day you can see for miles one the Firth of Tay and the surrounding countryside. The top makes the ideal stopping for lunch (weather dependent). To come down off the hill you can follow your route up joining the path for the home stretch.
The route passes through a small woodland and in the summer months you will need insect repellent as the midges can be quite fierce. The route quickly opens back up in to fields and is easy walking towards Carphin Farm and the charmingly named Emily Wood and Emily Hill.
If you still have some puff after Norman’s Law then you can scoot up Emily Hill which again offers some nice views over Luthrie.
The final stretch rejoins the original starting section of the route and leads you back into the village.
This is a enjoyable route all year round but make sure you are prepared for the weather as there are few places to shelter along the way.
