A good example of late Georgian, Scottish burgh architecture, simple symmetry and well proportioned. A type of building common as inns, manses, merchants' houses and banks. The bank provides an interesting variation, not uncommon to small market towns, with the addition of a separate bank building to one side of the bank house, or bank manager's residence.
