Best Place to Live in Scotland

Recommended Posts

The Sunday Times have compiled a list of the best places to live in Scotland, with Dundee taking the top spot. Dundee appears to have been given top spot due to its “transformation from run-down industrial relic to vibrant creative hub” and its low house prices. West End and Broughty Ferry get much praise, but the Sunday Times do appear to be concerned by the lack of John Lewis in the city...

Honourable mentions have gone to:

Leith, Edinburgh

Stockbridge, Edinburgh

Finnieston, Glasgow

Killearn, Stirling

Kilmacolm, Renfrewshire

Mull, Argyll and Bute

North Berwick, East Lothian

Port Appin, Argyll and Bute

St Boswells, Scottish Borders

Is Dundee a rightful winner?

 

Where is the best place to live in Scotland?

 

Do any P&Bers hail from the 10 best places to live?

 

Can a place truly be a good place to live if there is no John Lewis?

Being close to GGG brothers is obviously a good thing but other than that what is good about living in Finnieston unless you are a student? I doubt the Times in England is about to proclaim Shoreditch high street one of the top places to live.

Port Appin??? There's about 5 houses there. This sounds like some bullshitting journo has stayed in one of the posh hotels and decided it was a great place to live.

Mull?

Beautiful in the summer. I would be on the smack from October to May though. Same for Port Appin.

Dundee is of course the rightful winner ( well actually the Carse of Gowrie is better,rural living with Dundee amenities)

Silver spoons though. A certain level of class that sets the Carse apart from the rest.

If I could live anywhere in Scotland it'd be an east neuk of fife village. Crail, Anstruther, somewhere like that.

Rock up to Riverside Drive and get a flat over-looking the silvery tay. Only sets you back £1000 pcm.

The transformation of Dundee over the last few years has been outstanding.

I still remember the old Olympia swimming pool, the old council high-block and the remnants of the tunnel going from the back of the Caird Hall/Police Annex going to the train-station. It's remarkable what's been done there, and in some other parts of the city at large.
