there is no evidence of how this close obtained its current
moniker, its previous name of Fleming's Close derived
from Patrick Fleming, who owned this and other property
on the High Street.
Kennedy, grandson of King Robert III, once had a residence
on this site, but this no longer exists nor does the
royal-tennis court owned by Fleming and rumoured to have
sat on this site.
Monteith's Close is now the entrance to a Cocktail Bar
and Restaurant called Monteiths.
