Law castle is a restored 15th century keep which is available for rent as a holiday home. It is situated at the top of Law Brae a short walking distance from West Kilbride train station.
Superb views of the Firth can be had at from the brae.
It would appear Law castle had a quiet life without much incident as there is little in the way of information to be found on it.
The keep was built in the 15 th century as a wedding gift for Princess Mary the eldest daughter of James the 11 of Scotland upon her marriage to Thomas Boyd the Earl of Arran.
