On 7 January 2016 Boleskine House was given a Dangerous Buildings Notice pursuant to the powers granted to the Highland Council under the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. The reason for this was because of how unsafe the structure had become after the first fire a few weeks prior.
On 22 July 2020 we applied to have this notice removed in order to pave the way for restoration works to the structure to begin in full.
Following an inspection to the site last month, we are pleased to advise that today we have been issued with an acceptance certificate for the removal of the Dangerous Buildings Notice from the Highland Council.
This is a significant milestone for the Boleskine House Foundation SCIO as it means that the work undertaken over the last year has been enough to meet the statutory conditions to have this notice removed, and it now paves the way for works to proceed with the remainder of the rebuild of the house.
