Set for closure


Broadford is to see its Bank of Scotland branch close.

The shock news comes as the bank confirm that 23 branches are to shut across Scotland as part of a planned series of closures.

The announcement comes as part of a "strategic review" and the move is said to be as a result of, amongst other factors, falling customer demand

Also affected by the closure announcement will be the branch in Lochcarron.

A Bank of Scotland spokesperson said: "In 2014 Lloyds Banking Group announced a three-year strategy, which included a programme of planned branch closures. As part of this strategic review, we can confirm today that Bank of Scotland will be closing 23 branches.

"In most cases, this is as a result of falling customer demand while in others it is because of overlaps with other nearby branches.

"Branches will continue to play an important role in our multi-channel customer offering.

"Bank of Scotland is committed to maintaining a local presence and we expect to continue to have the largest branch network in Scotland."
