Duns Town Trail
18 Castle Street

18 Castle Street (10). Dating from the later part of the 18th century, this building at one time housed the Court Rooms of the Baron Baillie Court and several legal offices. The courtroom is to the rear of the ground floor and has an egg and dart cornice, panelling and a niche in which the Baron Baillie would have sat when dispensing justice. The shop front at ground floor level is a later addition. At the side, the pattern of the windows is unusual. The large window lights the stair inside, notice how the top of the doorway is merged with the cill of the window. See also the bellcast at the eaves of the slate roof.

Stop at the top before the main road and look at the building to your right.
