The south wing of Blair Adam was recorded by RCAHMS Threatened Buildings Survey in June 2013 prior to proposed partial demolition of the wing that has been propped up with timber buttresses designed by Roland Wedgewood. The remaining portuion of the wing is to be developed as a study centre for the Adam Family archives. It is proposed to develop the partially ruinous notheast corner of the courtyard as two holiday houses this area was also recorded. The opportunity was also taken to photograph the exterior of the whole house.
