Revealed: The most expensive streets in Scotland

Revealed: The most expensive streets in Scotland

The Scottish home of golf can still boast the most-expensive street north of the border, according to latest research.

Golf Place, beside the world-famous Old Course in St Andrews, has an average house price of £2,179,000.

A new study from Bank of Scotland found that half of Scotland’s 20 priciest locations are in Edinburgh. Glasgow has five, while Aberdeen has the remaining four.

Edinburgh’s most-expensive place is still Ettrick Road, with a typical house price of £1,899,000. It is also the second-priciest street in Scotland.

Regent Terrace, which sits within the New and Old Town, is Edinburgh's second most-costly location (£1,371,000) and Heriot Row (£1,334,000) remains in third.

Meanwhile in Glasgow, newly-crowned priciest street Capelrig Lane boasts an average price tag of £1,550,000 - £533,000 more than last year’s most-expensive street, Baroness Drive (£1,017,000).

Capelrig Lane, which takes third place for Scotland's priciest streets, comprises only seven individually-designed residences.

In Aberdeen, Deeview Road South is in first place with a typical house price of £1,232,000.

Rubislaw Den South is the second most-expensive street in the Granite City (£1,224,000), with Friarsfield Way in third (£1,132,000).

St Andrews above par

Graham Blair, mortgage director at Bank of Scotland, said: “No location in Scotland is on par with St Andrews when it comes to the nation’s most desirable addresses.

“It should come as no surprise that Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Glasgow all dominate the list of most expensive streets in Scotland.

"What is surprising is that there are only 14 locations outside of the big three cities that appear on the top 100 list."

The first street in Dundee, and the only entry for the city in this year’s research, is Braeside which is the 185th most expensive street in Scotland at £631,000.

Across Scotland, there are 93 streets with an average price tag of over £750,000.
