Built in 1851 in the Scottish Baronial style by William Mitchell-Innes, then feudal baron of Ayton, to the design of James Gillespie Graham In Scotland, a baron is the head of a feudal barony, also known as a prescriptive barony.
This used to be attached to a particular piece of land on which was situated the caput (Latin for "head") or essence of the barony, normally a building, such as a castle or manor house.
A General Register of Sasines was set up by Statute in 1617, with entry in the Register giving the prescriptive right (right by normal or correct usage), after so many years, to the caput or essence of the barony.
The individual who owned the said piece of land containing the caput was hence the baron or baroness.
On 28 November 2004, the Abolition of Feudal Tenure etc.(Scotland) Act 2000 came into full force and effect, putting an end to Scotland's feudal system.Under Scots law, a Scottish Prescriptive Barony by Tenure is now "incorporeal feudal heritage", not attached to the land and remains the only genuine, prescriptive, degree of title of UK nobility capable of being bought and sold – since under Section 63(1) of the Act, the dignity of baron is preserved after the abolition of the feudal system.Accordingly, the owner of the piece of land containing the caput was called a baron (or baroness).The Court of the Lord Lyon issued a ruling in April 2015 that recognises a person possessing the dignity of baron and other feudal titles (lordship/earl/marquis).
