Kinfauns Castle was designed by Robert Smirke, built between 1822-26 by Lord Gray on the site of a medieval stronghold, and is currently a Category A listed building. It is situated in Perth and Kinross and was bought in 2004 by Scottish businesswoman Ann Gloag OBE. In summer 2005, Mrs Gloag erected an unsightly seven-foot high security fence around her home in advance of obtaining the necessary planning approval. Historic Scotland, who was not consulted over the planning application, described the new fence as having a “significant and detrimental impact on the designed landscape” of Kinfauns. The controversy generated extensive media coverage and Kinfauns Castle was the site of the first test case of the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 when Ramblers Scotland, along with Perth & Kinross Council, opposed the application to exempt an area of around 12 acres from statutory rights of access. The enclosed area includes a substantial tract of native woodland where some unusual conifers can be found, including one specimen described as “the best swamp cypress in Scotland” and several old paths covering an area of around 4 acres. The Kinfauns case started on 23rd October 2006, and the sheriff's judgement was finally published in June 2007. Mrs Gloag was successful in her application, and today you have no statutory right to walk on this land.
