The Sidlaws (Scottish Gaelic: Na Sidhbheanntan [1]) are a range of hills of volcanic origin in the counties of Perthshire and Angus in Scotland that extend for 30 miles (45 km) from Kinnoull Hill, near Perth, northeast to Forfar. Law is a Lowland Scots word of Old English origin meaning a hill which rises sharply from the surrounding land. The element ‘sid’ probably derives from the Scottish Gaelic sidhe, meaning ‘fairy’ or ‘sacred’, referring to the prehistoric cairns still visible on various of the hills (claimed in folklore as the habitations of supernatural beings) and bheanntan, ‘peaks’.
