Visitors' photographs and stories of Dundee's most prominent landmark are being sought for a new website.

The site will cover the history of Dundee Law, the view of the city from the hill, and the Dundee to Newtyle railway which ran through the Law tunnel.

Local company MTC Media are appealing for photos and memories as part of the Law Heritage Project.

The firm also want tales of places in Dundee that can be seen from the hill.

The website will be available later this year.

Vari McDonald, depute convener of Dundee City Council's neighbourhood services committee, said the Law deserved a "first-class presence on the internet".

She said: "This project will give it that, and showcase not only the heritage of the Law, but the digital media talent in Dundee which is recognised across the world."

Personal memories will be linked with the changing view from the Law and animation will help bring history to life including recreating the journey through the railway tunnel.

Historical research is being supported by Dundee's archives, libraries and museums services.

Submissions to the website can be sent to lawheritage.project@dundeecity.gov.uk
