Description

Walker and Duncan, 1916 walled garden to west and south and

small poriton of east flank of house, rubble. Conical-roofed

summerhouse open to east with timber columns incorporated in

west wall.

SUNDIAL on axis of entrance to house, 17th century, polygonal multi-faceted block with dials supported by early 20th

century scroll-bracketted shaft standing on stepped circular

plinth.

MARK'S GARDEN: north-east of main garden with lower wall to

main garden with gatepiers with torch-like finials and

wrought-iron gates; in north wall sculptured shrine designed

by Sir Robert Lorimer incorporating stoup beneath inscription

and low-relief cherub's head surmounted by a cross.

Statement of Special Interest

The early 20th century alterations to Innes House included

the creation of a new main entrance to the house from the

north. The original entrance became the garden entrance, the

new garden being laid out as part of the alterations. The

plans for the garden were slightly modified after the death

of Captain Mark Tennant in 1916 and the rose garden (Mark's

Garden) dedicated to his memory.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
