The Duncans Building is an historic row of 16 units on High Street. The two units at the far left have been restored by Joe and Nicky Arts (according to the sign on the door of the building). Another two units at the other end of the row are being restored by another owner. The remaining units are owned by the Crown. According to this article in the Press there are developers interested in restoring the rest of the units.
