City kids contribute to book of poems inspired by Dundee Law

A book of poems inspired by the city’s oldest cultural landmark has been published.

Forty Views of Dundee Law features 20 poems chosen by the public following a competition, alongside 20 photographs of the much-loved hill.

Local schoolchildren and poets from across Scotland submitted work on historical conflicts, the railway tunnel, wildlife, the war memorial and the view from the top of the Law.

Councillor Stewart Hunter said: “The project has encouraged people to express what the hill means to them.

“It’s been fascinating to find out what people think about the Law.”

Photos donated by members of Dundee Photographic Society also feature prominently in the new book.

Produced as part of the Dundee Law Heritage Project, funded by Dundee City Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the book is available at all the city’s libraries.
