Statement of Special Interest

Gagie Home Farm was formerly the home farm for Gagie House and is listed in this context as an A group with Gagie House, Summerhouse, Walled Garden and Sundial, Gatepiers and Adjoining Walls, Outer Gatepiers and Adjoining Walls, and Coach House/Stable. Whyte refers to an Inventory of 1649 in the Guthrie papers which indicates the existence of 2 clusters of buildings, parts of which may remain. The steading also relates to the agricultural improvements of the 1760s referred to by Imlach in the OSA. The farm was acquired by the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries after the First World War and divided into 3 holdings, now reduced to 2, Nos 1 and 3. The farm house has been demolished as has a horse engine which was at the north of the north east range. See also the NOTES to Gagie House.

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.
