Castle Tioram

Castle Tioram
Castle Tioram in Moidart is a nationally important scheduled monument protected under the provisions of the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Area Act 1979. It is privately owned.

Current Position

The owner of Castle Tioram and Historic Scotland have begun new discussions on bringing the Castle back into residential use.  It is very early in the process and any proposed works will require scheduled monument consent from Historic Scotland and will be assessed in line with the Scottish Historic Environment Policy.  There is currently no application for scheduled monument consent for Castle Tioram with Historic Scotland.


On 22 February 1999 the owner applied for consent to bring the monument back into residential use. Following careful consideration Historic Scotland decided the case had not been made. In April 1999, Historic Scotland notified the applicant that it was minded to refuse the application for scheduled monument consent for the proposed works.

The applicant chose to exercise his statutory right to have the application referred to an independent Reporter. The Reporter recommended refusal and Scottish Ministers took the decision to reject the application in 2002.
