Statement of Interest

Although altered, the former Bank of Scotland is of interest for its quality of design and its prominent location at the heart of Stonehaven's New Town. A well-detailed building, its features of particular note include the colonette-mullioned bipartite windows, the consoled doorpiece, and the rusticated quoins
