Listed Buildings

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.

Where are Listed Buildings in the Park?

There are 728 buildings or structures listed in the National Park and they range from castles to small cottages and piers to aqueducts. The National Park Authority holds the list of buildings and structures which are scheduled or listed within the National Park. You can also search the Historic Scotland website for information on a listed building or  we can advise you whether or not your property is listed.

How do I apply?

If Listed Building Consent is required you should submit the application to us using the online facility or downloadable forms provided by the Scottish Government.
Where it is a Category ‘A’ or ‘B’ listed building we will consult Historic Scotland. Where the building is a Category ‘C’  listed building we will consult our internal Built Heritage Adviser. We can either approve, approve with conditions, or refuse your application. If it is refused you have the right to an appeal to the Scottish Ministers.

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.
