A closing date has been set for the sale of a former bank building in Cumnock.

Previously serving as the town's Royal Bank of Scotland building, the branch was initially put up for sale by East Ayrshire Council last May.

A sale for the property fell through last year after the local authority, which owns the building, decided to put the building on the market to guard against any further expenditure on the property.

Money was ploughed into the building to fix the deteriorating roof, with council bosses hoping that building would have been occupied, had it not been for issues brought on by the pandemic.

The building went back up for sale last month, with offers of in excess of £75,000 being invited.

Now, a closing date of 12pm on Thursday, April 18 has been set to try and find the next occupant of the building.

The bank was once one of four branches in the town, with only the Bank of Scotland on Townhead.

‼️ CLOSING DATE SET - Thurs 18th April - 12 noon ‼️
