Buildings at Risk Register

Search by planning authority to locate buildings at risk across Scotland.

The Buildings at Risk Register brings together potential restorers and redevelopers with buildings and sites that are considered at risk or under threat.

The historic places on the Register are all of architectural or historic importance. They are usually listed buildings or an unlisted building within a conservation area.

A building at risk may be:

  • long-term vacant
  • neglected and/or poorly maintained
  • structurally unsound
  • damaged by fire
  • unsecured and open to the elements
  • threatened with demolition

We encourage community groups and interested individuals to contact us to suggest a building to be added to or removed from the Register.

Buildings stay on the Register until they’re either saved and put back into use, or demolished. The invaluable statistics provided by the Register are featured in Scotland’s Historic Environment Audit and used to track the regeneration of historic buildings.

We have published guidance on the Use and Adaptation of Listed Buildings and best practice case studies, including Duns Primary School in the Scottish Borders which is one of 1,800 former At Risk buildings adapted and brought back into use.
