Law’s Close is a category A-listed 16th Century Merchant’s House with spectacular period decoration on Kirkcaldy’s High Street. The building’s prominent location offers views across the Firth of Forth and access to a landscaped garden and open air performance space at the rear.

The high status of the building is expressed in the fine interior decoration found throughout the building such as painted beam ceilings, plaster mouldings, multiple glazed windows and the use of cut-stone (ashlar work).

The building had been used for a variety of purposes over the years before falling into disrepair. Scottish Historic Buildings Trust became involved in the 1980’s and raised funding to restore and save this important A-listed building.

The building now contains a variety of office spaces and two retail units available to let. The Education Room offers workshop space and hosts a permanent exhibition detailing the work carried out during the restoration project. A beautiful long rigg garden has been designed, as part of the Kirkcaldy Riggs Gardens Project, with the aim of relating a modern garden design to the history of the house. Managed as a community garden, it is open to the public and includes an outside performance space.
