Scald Law is a hill in Midlothian. At 1,900 feet it is the highest of the Pentland Hills. The hill is composed of Devonian volcanic rock.

The origin of the name 'Scald Law' is uncertain. Some sources say it derives from the Scots Language word scawed, meaning 'bare',[1] while another claims it derives from scaldberry, an old name for a blackberry.
