Yesterday, I took advantage of my bus pass for old people, and went to North Berwick, where I walked up Berwick Law. The hill is a volcanic plug.
There’s a relatively new replica whale’s jawbone at the top. The previous real one was put there in 1936, and the one before that, in 1850. There therefore seems to be a planned obsolescence in terms of whale’s jawbones.
The trees on the east side of the hill were planted to commemorate the Act of Union between the Scottish and the English Parliaments in 1707. There’s not many of them left.
The ruin at the top was built during the Napoleonic Wars. Just down from it is another structure, built during WWII as a lookout for Germans.
