Seven Bank of Scotland branches across the North-east are set to close.
Services in Aberdeen’s John Street, Cullen, Fochabers, Portsoy, Aberlour, New Pitsligo and Macduff are among 23 in Scotland set to be shut.
It follows Lloyds Banking Group, that owns Bank of Scotland, announcing 3,000 cuts and 200 branch closures to come into effect by the end of 2017.
A Bank of Scotland spokesman said: “In 2014 Lloyds Banking Group announced a three-year strategy, which included a programme of planned branch closures.
“As part of this strategic review, we can confirm today that Bank of Scotland will be closing 23 branches.
“In most cases, this is as a result of falling customer demand while in others it is because of overlaps with other nearby branches.
“These changes will not result in any compulsory job losses.
“We aim to redeploy everyone currently working at a closing branch to alternative Bank of Scotland branches.”
