Snowie and others v Farish

Servitude – Servitude right of access – Validity of servitude. Sheriff Court: In an action in which the pursuers sought declarator that the terms and provisions of a servitude right of access over a private road granted to the defender were of no legal effect, the court rejected the pursuers' contention that, properly understood, the terms of the grant of servitude were wholly ineffective, for want of precision, to create a servitude right of access over their land, and sustained the defender's preliminary plea that the pursuers' case was fundamentally irrelevant and should be dismissed.
