One of East Lothian’s most distinctive features, Traprain Law – approximately four miles from Haddington – rises to 724 feet (221 metres), with the summit providing spectacular views.
There are signs of burials from around 1500BC and occupation after 1000BC, and it appears to have been occupied in the Late Iron Age by the Votadini tribe. A hill fort from this period covered almost 40 acres. In 1919 a hoard of Roman silver tableware was discovered. This treasure – now in the Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh – is thought to be a payment to the Votadini.
