Listing is the recognition that a building or structure is of special architectural and historic interest. To merit designation the property must satisfy set criteria prepared by Historic Scotland.
Historic Scotland publishes a leaflet called Guide to the protection of Scotland’s Listed Buildings which explains how buildings are selected for listing and what listing means for owners and occupiers.

Built Heritage Repair Grant
We wish to encourage people to enhance their built heritage. In order to help we have a Built Heritage Repair Grant (BHRG) scheme, which is run on an annual basis, focussing on the repair and restoration of traditional, pre-1919 buildings, which are visible from main routes through the National Park.
War Memorials Restoration Fund
In January 2013 the First Minister announced the launch of the Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund. This is a million pound fund available between April 2013 and March 2018 to help communities undertake repair and conservation work to war memorials in Scotland. Further information on this fund and WW1 Commemorations in the National Park can be found here.
