Notes: Law Castle is situated on the lower slopes of Law Hill in West Kilbride, only a short walk (about 200m) from the railway station. The castle is a simple rectangular structure with a sloped roof and several large chimneys protruding at each side. It was built in the 15th century for King James III's sister Mary as a wedding gift upon her marriage to Thomas Boyd, the Earl of Arran. In the late 1980s it was restored and fully renovated by the Phillips family - co-ordinated by Dr Anthony Philip Phillip Phillips. It was built as a family home for himself, his wife, his daughter and his grandson. It was a project in which he designed floor plans and strategic structural plans for the beams in the roof himself whilst keeping the home's originality and authentic Keep castle feel.
