Most expensive homes in Scotland: full list

Pricey pad: Regent Terrace in Edinburgh

Regent Terrace in Edinburgh, a short walk from the Balmoral Hotel and with views over Arthur’s Seat, is Scotland’s most expensive street.

Buyers will have to pay, on average, £1.68 million, for a pad in the Georgian street, a row of 34 classical three-bay townhouses built on the upper south side of Calton Hill.

The terrace sits above the Palace of Holyroodhouse and is within the Edinburgh New and Old Town UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Edinburgh dominates the latest list, with homes in Ann Street in the Stockbridge area coming in second, with houses averaging £1.59 million, while nearby Danube Street is third with prices averaging £1.41 million.

Homes in Wester Coates Gardens cost £1.33 million and Hope Terrace in the south of the city average £1.28 million.

Just two of the 10 most expensive streets are outside the capital.

The Scores in St Andrews is home to houses costing an average of £1.28m, and Glasgow’s Earls Gate averages £1.17m.

Homes in East Lothian are also in list. In at 23rd is Hill Road in Gullane, where homes average £1.08 million. In 25th place is King’s Cairn, North Berwick, where a property costs an average of £1.07 million.

Graham Blair, director at Royal Bank of Scotland, said: “While Edinburgh continues to attract the highest house prices in Scotland, the entry of two coastal roads outside the city is indicative of the housing market over the past 18 months.

“Priorities have changed – homes that offer more space are more valuable to buyers than homes in prime commuting locations.

“Therefore, those with deeper pockets are starting to look further afield for their forever home.”
