Windows are a mix of timber casement and timber sash design, incorporating single glazing.

Dumfries is the principal shopping and administrative centre in the Dumfries and Galloway region of southwest Scotland, and has a residential population of around 37,500. The town lies approximately 75 miles south of Glasgow, 34 miles northwest of Carlisle and is bypassed by the A75 trunk road. The town’s retail catchment includes other nearby towns and villages, together with the surrounding rural hinterland. The area also draws in significant tourist trade during the spring and summer months. The property occupies a prominent and highly visible position, fronting the busy thoroughfare of Whitesands, adjacent to one of the town’s main public car parks. It is also only a short distance from the pedestrianised High Street. The building lies close to the River Nith however we are advised that it has not been breached since 2015 due to a custom flood defence system having been installed. The subjects benefit from good public transport links with bus stances and taxi ranks located nearby
