Scotland BISF Street Index
With the help of our members have compiled the worlds first BISF street register of BISF House locations in England, Scotland and Wales.
The list has grown enormously thanks to your help but we still need more suggestions for those few hidden streets that have not yet been included.
If you live in or know of a road within Scotland that contain BISF Houses, then please let us know in the comments section below. We can then add your Street suggestion to the worlds only UK register of these unique properties.

As I am living in a BISF house in Edinburgh , had noticed that Fredrick Street was down as being in Edinburgh - when clicked on it, as know that Fredrick street in Edinburgh hasn't got any BISF houses, it actually is in Dundee . Could you please adjust to avoid confusion?
Also - sorry to be a bit of a stickler - why has Edinburgh got 2 'g' s in it?
There are other BISF houses in Edinburgh - Burdiehouse area - going to post, once checked out full address info.
the warmest of welcomes to our community.
Thank you for pointing out the Dundee Error, this has now been rectified along with the Edinburgh double G error which was caused by auto-insert on my input program. I'm aware of the houses in Burdiehouse as there has been a lot written about the area in various forums and I look forward to adding many more streets to the list once I get the time. As you can imagine, searching and verifying each street takes a great deal of time but solving a few of the site issues we have had with stability has sadly taken precedence just now.
I Have always been fascinated by the maisonette style BISF Houses that were built around Scotland allowing for four families to live in each pair of dwellings, effectively splitting the houses into flats.
Is this something that you are familiar with at all?
Many thanks Marc for adjusting - you are doing a fab job here with this website, much appreciated.
Haven't come across those maisonette style BISF houses yet - sounds interesting though.
We had plans in converting ours into a 4 bedroom by turning the stair around, however it maybe a future project for now, as it's a bit challenging to do that kind of project while still living with at least 4 people in the house.
When looking at some of the photos , it looks as though , that the designs in England/ Wales are a little different from those here in Edinburgh.
We insulated ours from the inside about 5 years ago and around 17 years ago it got it's facelift outside - kind of liked the original facing , as it made it look more unique somehow.
, Glenlochay Road in Perth has a number of BISF houses on it, I have just bought one of them.
Thanks for maintaining this site-fantastic information and advice for us new BISF house owners.
Hi Sam, I'm re replying to your comment because we appear to have lost some topic replies after a site update during the summer and for that I apologise.
The Houses in Finavon Terrace aren't actually BISF houses but from your excellent photograph above, they do appear to be timber framed.
I am in total awe of the extremely wide variety of non-traditional construction types that have been built in Scotland, many of which appear to have been built in no other parts of the UK.
I'm currently awaiting a response from Dundee Council for details of construction types used throughout Dundee and in particular, in Finavon, which should provide further information as to each construction type here as Finavon Terrace does appear to have several different build types.
I hope to update you shortly.
I have become aware of a significant number of single storey bungalows in Baird Grove, Edinburgh and Kirkhill Road and Drive, Edinburgh. They appear to have been built by a Thomson& Rae or Rae & Co around 1926/7 and initial investigation shows a roughcast external leaf of 100mm approx. concrete, a wide cavity and plasterboard internal lining on 50x50 battens. Overall wall thickness matches a conventional cavity build.
I have Just popped back into this forum to check on any responses from my first post, in relation to trying to find a similar set of house plans, only to realise that your list of BISF Properties for the Scotland area lacks my address.
On Thorburn Crescent, Annan there are many numerous Semi-Detached BISF built properties, not only here, but in the immediate local area, there are hundreds...
How do you actually update your database, a visit, confirmation via Google ?
I hope this helps 🙂
