A major bank is closing one of its branches in Scotland.

Barclays will close the doors of their Kirkintilloch branch on June 9, 2023.

The decision has been made as there has been a transition towards more customers using online banking rather than visiting the branch in person.

A statement on the bank's website reads: "Back when we opened this branch, visiting us in person was one of the only ways to do your banking.

"Now, as there are lots of ways to manage your money without even leaving your home, we’re seeing many customers choosing to bank using our app, and Online or Telephone Banking.

"This has had a big impact on the number of customers coming in to see us."

Bank bosses have reassured customers that they can still use many different options for banking, including online, on an app, telephone banking, and the post office.
