Publication Account (1995)

Dunnikier House or Path House, in Nether Street, was built by John Watson in 1692, but was soon 'sold to the Oswald family who had important connections with Kirkcaldy. An L-plan, three-storeyed, harled building, it has a number of interesting architectural features including scrolled skewputs at the base of the gables and a double wall sundial. The circular tower in the re-entrant angle was inserted in the late nineteenth century.
