The land illustrated above (Midmar Paddock on the east slopes of Blackford Hill, Edinburgh) is obtainable via Strutt & Parker (sales pamphlet right here – 925kb pdf).
The reason for posting this web site should ask “who is the owner of this land? Does anyone understand?
Strutt and Parker will not divulge the solution.
The land is not signed up when you look at the Land Register but deeds are probably taped within the enroll of Sasines however it will cost around £50 and 1-2 times work to determine the answer there. I have neither.
So I believed i may ask you to answer. Can any person help?
