Emergency Services were called to Ladyhill House on Hill Street just before 2am.

The blaze was brought under control three hours later just after 5am. There have been no reported injuries.

Police Scotland have now stated its officers are treating the fire as wilful and that enquiries are ongoing to establish the full circumstances.

Detective Sergeant Keith Rennie added: “I’m keen to speak to anyone who was in the area around the time and saw anything which may assist our investigation.

“I’d also ask drivers with dashcams to review footage from the area and bring anything of significance you’ve captured to our attention.”
