Law's Close ~ The Merchant's House
An A-Listed 16thC Merchant’s House, the earliest known owners of which being the ship-owning family Law in the late 1500s (hence ‘Law’s Close’).
Used for a variety of purposes over the centuries, but with little substantial modification, the building fell into disrepair in the 20thC, prior to The Scottish Historic Buildings Trust becoming involved in the 1980s.
Over the next 20 years, SHBT brought much of the building back to its former glory, restoring key features such as timber panelling, 16thC painted ceilings, a late 17thC plaster work ceiling and a 17thC wall painting of a ship.
The restoration was completed in 2005 by Architects Simpson & Brown at a cost of £1,300,000.
For our Open Day we will be giving a welcome introduction to the building and hosting a Kirkcaldy Civic Trust Information Stand.
There will also be children's Arts & Crafts activities and produce from the 'Merchant's Garden' will be on sale.
