The Bank of Scotland branch in Girvan is set to close in two weeks.

The Lloyds Banking Group announced plans last year to shut the Bank of Scotland branch in Dalrymple Street on February 21.

Due to the branch's closure, Girvan customers are now facing a trek to their new nearest branch, either by heading 20 miles to Ayr or 28 miles south to Stranraer.

The bank previously said that more customers than ever were doing their banking online, with a 41 per cent decrease in personal customers since 2018, and a 46 per cent decrease in business customers.

Cash machine transactions have also dropped by 18 per cent from 2018, the bank confirmed.

BoS also confirmed that 70 per cent of customers using the Girvan branch also used other Bank of Scotland branches, internet banking or telephone banking.

LINK, the UK’s cash access and cash machine network, said Girvan had been chosen as one of the next locations for a 'community banking hub', in light of the closure of branches in the town.

Local MPs and MSPs expressed their disappointment at the decision to close the branch, with the bank's site in Cumnock to close later this year too.
