Edgarhope Law
Range: Lammermuir
Summit: 1,204 feet NT567531
55°46’9"N, 2°41’30"W

Edgarhope Law is a hill on Lammermuir in Berwickshire, with a height of 1,204 feet.

The hill stands above Lauderdale. The River Leader is fed here by a number of burns coming of Edgarhope law and neighbouring hills: Wheel Burn runs off its slopes to the Lauder, the Earnscleugh Water and Blythe Water to either side. From the lower stream of earnscleugh Water, by the Leader, rises the slope of Edgarhope Wood, and above the wood, Edgharhope Moor.

The nearest town is Lauder.

Part of the Southern Upland Way runs up by the hill, and a publicised path from Lauder to Longformacus, runs a little below it (this section being part of the ancient Herring Road). A local path through Edgarhope Wood and up the Earnscleugh Water comes up to the top of the hill, with just a short diversion needed to the summit. The path climbs to the high moorland and on the summit is a fine viewpoint.
