The quarry is on the outskirts of North Berwick. There are various ways to get here. The locals say using the back roads is better, but I usually stick to the main roads as follows. Leave Edinburgh on the A1, get off at the second Haddington junction onto the A199 (towards E Linton) and turn left onto the B1347 after about a mile. Follow this, heading for North Berwick. After quite a few zig-zags, just before entering North Berwick, this eventually leads you past the lane leading to the car park (the Law is clearly visible as you approach, but the lane is a bit hard to spot - it appears suddenly, to the right, on a fairly sharp left hand bend). Park in the car park marked with the blue P on the OS map, and then walk around the path to the quarry, marked on the map with the orange arrow. The bolted climbing is on the two obvious big walls at right angles to each other.
