The Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland highlights properties of architectural or historic merit throughout the country (including Shetland) that are considered to be at risk.
To be at risk, a building does not necessarily need to be in poor condition, it may simply be standing empty with no clear future use. The main purpose of the Register is to raise awareness of these buildings, to seek potential restorers, and to aid the identification of new uses that will enable these buildings to be saved.
The Register is maintained by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) on behalf of Historic Scotland. Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland
