The search has started to find who owns a dilapidated north-east building which is more than 200 years old.
Concerns have been raised that the Well of Tarlair, near Macduff, could collapse unless repairs are carried out as a matter of urgency.
The property forms part of the Tarlair complex, which shut down almost 20 years ago.
It is used today by local model boat enthusiasts and dog walkers.
The call to action was made just days after heavy rainfall caused a section of the cliffs nearby to slip.
And now, local councillor Mark Findlater has confirmed efforts have started to track down who rightly owns and is responsible for maintaining the property.
Last night, he insisted it was vital that the building is protected for future generations.
The Well of Tarlair, which is a C-listed structure, is thought to date back to 1770.
Mr Findlater added: “This just came up at the weekend, so I am in the process of finding out who actually owns it. I don’t know yet.
“It is a historically old site and all the beaches there were used by fishermen to store their catches, so there is a fair bit of history there.
“But, as for details of the building itself, we don’t know much yet.
“Tarlair itself is a listed building, so we have to make sure that it’s saved. We have to look to the future for that area and how we are going to use it – it would be a great venue for events and we have to get it right for the community.”
Tarlair swimming pool originally opened in 1931.
The Art Deco-style complex includes changing rooms and a large pool. Historic Scotland has described it as one of the finest examples of an outdoor pool alongside similar facilities in Stonehaven and Gourock.
