Fife Central

Law’s Close, known locally as “The Merchants House”  is a Category ‘A’ listed building and one of the best preserved 16th century town houses in Scotland. Situated on the High Street in Kirkcaldy with views across the Firth of Forth towards Edinburgh. The building dates from the 1500’s and is considered to be one of the finest surviving examples of a house of this type. After becoming redundant and falling into disrepair, the building was restored by Scottish Historic Buildings Trust after an extensive repair programme. The building re-opened in 2005 and now offers comfortable and unique office accommodation.
