SNP MSP for Clydesdale Aileen Campbell has slammed the proposed closures of five local branches of the Royal Bank of Scotland as “outrageous”.


RBS has announced it plans to close the following branches: 

  • Royal Bank of Scotland Carnwath branch on 7th May 2018;
  • Royal Bank of Scotland Douglas Lanarkshire branch on 21st May 2018;
  • Royal Bank of Scotland Biggar branch on 31st  May 2018;
  • Royal Bank of Scotland Lesmahagow branch on 18th June 2018; and
  • Royal Bank of Scotland Strathaven branch on 25th June 2018. 

“This is an outrageous announcement from RBS," said Aileen. "The closure of five branches in Clydesdale would leave the area with only one RBS branch. 

“People across Clydesdale rely on these branches, which are at the heart of our many rural communities, providing lifeline services for many. 

“I will be urgently seeking meetings with RBS to express my feelings about this and to work towards any possible resolution which could keep these vital branches open in Clydesdale”.
