BALINTORE CASTLE

Balintore Castle, situated in a tranquil glen in Angus, Scotland, is Grade A listed. It is a late and mature Scots Baronial design by the renowned country house architect William Burn.

By the mid twentieth century estate finances had dwindled, lavish shooting parties had ceased, and Balintore was abandoned.

Following a precedent-setting Compulsory Purchase Order (an eight year process in which this office played a primary role, supporting and advising the prospective purchaser) we surveyed the structure and prepared an application for Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent.

Conversion of the kitchen wing to form owner accommodation has commenced and work to the main building has included overhauling roofs, reinstatement of floors and the installation of new or refurbished sash windows.

The project is far from complete, although the steady pace of progress suits the client and is appropriate for the long drying out process and gentle awakening of the castle.
