Law, long a roofless ruin, was restored in recent years to create a property available for let, thus securing its future.
Law Castle circa. 1900
Dated 1462 its thick walls rise from a vaulted basement through four storeys to a parapet carried on continuous corbelling of a type typical of the west of Scotland.
The entrance is at ground floor level and protected by gunloops of a later date. Above is a panel which would have held the arms of Thomas Boyd, later Earl of Arran. The windows have been barred.
Law Castle today - restored and with a bright future
The building has been re-harled much to its advantage. You can read more about the history of Law Castle by visiting its website -
