The Well House was badly damaged in a blaze in the early hours of Saturday, April 2.

It is believed to have started after flames spread from a fire affecting a motorbike.

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service attended the scene in the town’s Waterside Road at about 2am and officers wearing breathing apparatus put out the flames.

A number of residents at the complex were evacuated.

No-one was injured but there was significant damage to parts of the building and the roof.
