North Berwick Law

Twice in the last few years I’ve cycled past North Berwick Law and resisted the temptation of what must be one Scotland’s most stupendous little hills, topped with a whale jawbone. It was a splendid day for it. A furious wind on the summit. Bass Rock as clear as a button across the sea. The whale bone remains, more than 300 years since one was first placed here, although it isn’t the original and nor is it a genuine jawbone. Fake or not, is there another summit in the world that sports such an adornment?
