Average house price in Scotland’s
seaside towns show impressive growth
According to Bank of Scotland’s latest Seaside Towns Review, the
average house price in Scotland’s seaside towns has grown by 39
percent – equivalent to £348 per month since 2005, which exceeds
the 32 percent increase for all seaside towns in Britain.
The most expensive seaside town in Scotland is North Berwick, with an average price of £327,124, followed by St Andrews at £302,536. However, savvy house buyers are increasingly looking beyond East Lothian to the Borders, where the 32-mile stretch of Berwickshire coast offers exceptional value-for-money properties in picturesque locations such as Coldingham Bay and Eyemouth, which are still well within commuting distance of Edinburgh.
Berwickshire offers as much if not more in terms of lifestyle opportunity than any other part of the Scottish Borders – or indeed the UK.
Small as it is, this corner of the Borders offers magnificent sandy beaches, wild life tours, off-shore safaris, loch, sea and river fishing, bird watching, golf, guided walks, cycle trails, boat trips, surfing, diving, historic monuments, places of interest and a diverse housing market that caters for all property style preferences and budgets.
