Traprain Law has been closed for the forseeable future owing to a bush fire. East Lothian rangers were on site on Monday 15th to talk to arriving climbers. Climbers were informed that a grass and peat fire had started on the west, non climbing, side of Traprain Law on Saturday 13th September and continued to burn/ smoulder until Sunday. Despite efforts the fire spread over the whole of traprain Law and all vegetation and peat has been burnt to a cinder. There are large amounts of ash falling down and ther are concerns about the stability of rocks above the main crag walls.
