Dundee War Memorial (The Beacon) on Dundee Law

Photo

Taking its name from an old Scots word for a hill, Dundee Law, or Law Hill, is a conical mass of volcanic basalt forming the highest point in the city of Dundee. It rises to a height of 174m (571 feet). An Iron Age hill fort once occupied the site on which now stands a memorial to the dead of World War I erected in 1923. The Beacon of the memorial is lit on four occasions each year: 25th September, in memory of the Battle of Loos where many local men serving in the Black Watch lost their lives; 24th October, for United Nations Day; Remembrance Sunday; and 11th November, Armistice Day.
