Kinross Town Hall
Work has been completed on the transformation of Kinross’ historic Town Hall site. The £1.5m project has seen the creation of nine, one- and two-bedroom apartments. The iconic building, which includes the town’s clock tower, former post office and library, was declared surplus to requirements by Perth and Kinross Council in 2003. The 12-month refurbishment has seen the former library made into a pair of two-bed townhouses, with four one-bed and three two-bed apartments in the town hall and post office sections.
