Galloway v Earl of Minto: HL 12 Dec 1921

Held (aff. judgment of Second Division) that a heritor whose teinds have been valued in money but have had a stipend localled upon them in victual, is bound, where the stipend exceeds the amount of the valued teinds, either to pay the amount or to surrender the teinds in perpetuity. He is not entitled to tender for the particular year the amount of his teinds as valued.
Where the teinds are unvalued and the stipend localled exceeds one-fifth of the rent, the heritor must either pay the amount of the stipend or lead a Valuation and surrender.

Lord Dunedin, Lord Atkinson, Lord Shaw, Lord Sumner, and Lord Wrenbury
