Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - NEWS -

Two re­dun­dant bank branches in Dum­friesshire are to go un­der the ham­mer later this month.

SVA Prop­erty Auc­tions ex­pect to sell the An­nan and Locker­bie build­ings at an auc­tion in Ed­in­burgh on Thurs­day, November 22

Both branches were closed this sum­mer by the Royal Bank of Scot­land, leav­ing empty the prom­i­nent build­ings on An­nan and Locker­bie’s High Streets.

SVA has al­ready sold 24 for­mer bank premises this year which have been snapped up for re­tail or of­fice use.

Ac­cord­ing to auc­tion­eer Shaun Vigers, the C-listed for­mer An­nan bank, on the ground floor of a two storey 19th cen­tury red sand­stone build­ing, is one of the high­lights of the sale. The prop­erty has a guide price of be­tween £75,000 and £80,000.

He said:“We have found, over the years, that this is the kind of auc­tion that buy­ers like and we are look­ing for­ward to see­ing a room full of in­vestors, en­trepreneurs, sea­soned auc­tion at­ten­dees and new faces ready for an op­por­tu­nity or a chal­lenge.”

The for­mer Locker­bie bank is the ground floor of a three-storey sand­stone build­ing and is grade C-listed. The guide price is £55,000.
