Work on the last of the four major priority buildings in Rothesay’s Townscape Heritage Initiative is about to get under way.

Scaffolding will be erected around Duncan’s Halls - also known as the Palace Buildings - in East Princes Street from Monday, March 17.

Planned improvements over the 18 weeks of the project include rot work to the roof and rear stairs, repair of the chimneys, slating, leadwork and copper, repair and replacement of soil waste and rain water collection goods, joinery work, window decoration and repairs to the bull’s eye windows in the roof.
