Listed Building Search

Welcome to our Listed Building Search.

If you would prefer to search using a map please go to Scotland's Environment website at www.environment.scotland.gov.uk.

For best results, you should avoid including numbers and words such as such as street or house or road as these appear throughout many records. In addition, you can narrow your search by specifying a Council/Burgh/Parish, a building category, or date range.

We are always ready to help and you can contact the team on (0131) 668 8701 or (0131) 668 8705 for advice on searching.

CCategory C

Buildings of local importance, lesser examples of any period, style, or building type, as originally constructed or moderately altered; and simple traditional buildings which group well with others in categories A and B. (Approximately 41% of the total).
