Scottish properties provide generous space at an interesting price whether it is an apartment in a tall, elegant Edinburgh townhouse or a country estate with several hundred acres of land. In 2014 Scotland voted to remain part of the United Kingdom and determined its future as an important business centre and leisure destination.
Queen Elizabeth II spends time each year in her Scottish homes in Edinburgh and Aberdeenshire and it is the mix of vibrant festival city and glorious countryside that sums up Scotland’s appeal.
Away from the capital, choices in Scotland include hunting estates in the Highlands, homes with access to the mighty salmon fishing rivers including the Tay and the Tweed and small cottages on islands off the west coast. One hour north of Edinburgh on the east coast the university city of St Andrews is famous as the home of golf. There are ten courses in St Andrews and a further twenty within half an hour.
Scotland is also a country of castles. From Edinburgh Castle perched high above the capital city to stone ruins on a loch in Inverness-shire, Scotland has over 2,000 castles in various states of repair.
Edinburgh, a centre for tourism and business, consistently wins lavish praise as one of the best UK cities for its high quality of life. Swift connections to London by rail and air with excellent schooling and easy access to the surrounding magnetic countryside are the main appeal of Edinburgh, a festival city that offers truly beautiful properties.
City centre property here is some of the finest in the entire UK. Georgian homes in The New Town and Victorian homes in the West End have high ceilings and beautiful proportions and many apartments often share communal gardens.
