Striking three-storey historic building in the middle of the pedestrianised High Street in Dumfries, complete with a six-storey clock tower. One of the town's oldest buildings, it dates back to 1705. Has had many uses, including court-house, prison, armoury and guard house, and more recently as the Register Office for births, deaths and marriages.
An eye-catching plaque lists the distances from Dumfries to various UK towns.
The body of poet Robert Burns was apparently laid out here in 1796, to allow local people to pay their last respects.
