EDINBURGH is home to Scotland’s 10 most expensive streets to live on, a Bank of Scotland review has found.

Ann Street, in the city's Stockbridge area, has taken the top spot, setting wealthy buyers back an average £1.7 million (£1,685,000).

This is an increase from £1.59m in the price of its houses last year, based on Royal Bank of Scotland research from 2021.

The country’s most expensive street to live on is known for its classic Georgian architecture.

Meanwhile, Wester Coates Avenue in the west of the capital, and Regent Terrace, near Calton Hill, are in the second and third places respectively.

Properties on Wester Coates Avenue are priced at more than £1.6m (£1,615,000) and Regent Terrace has properties averaging more than £1.5m (£1,529,000).

The rest of Scotland’s priciest roads, according to the review, are also in Edinburgh (see below - infographics from the review).

The average asking price for homes along these elite streets is £1.4m, the review further revealed.

Graham Blair, mortgages director at Bank of Scotland, said: “Ann Street in the beautiful city of Edinburgh tops the most expensive list, setting wealthy buyers back almost £1.7m on average. 

“While not in the top 10 priciest, homes in St Andrews also don’t come cheap, with The Scores and Donaldson Crescent offering properties at over £1.1m on average.”

In the top 25 most expensive Scottish streets to live on, only three are outside the capital.

These are Musselburgh, St Andrews and North Berwick.
