Buy your new home in Scotland

A country of historic castles, vast mountain ranges and exciting cities

Whether you’re adventuring through the Highlands, exploring the streets of Edinburgh or tasting hearty traditional food, Scotland is full of exciting things to do and interesting places to see. And with top-rated schools and universities, lots of employment opportunities and good transport links, it’s little wonder that new homes in Scotland are so popular with families across the generations.

Scotland through the ages

Scotland’s history began with farming and hunting, when it was home to ancient tribes who settled in the region. In 80 AD the Romans conquered the Pict communities and stayed put in Scotland until the 9th century when the Vikings invaded. Over the centuries, Scotland has seen many monarchs come and go, with dramatic storylines that went on to inspire great artistic works, including the plays of Shakespeare.

Fast forward to the 18th and 19th century, and the ‘Highland Clearances’ evicted a large number of people living in the highlands after a change in landowner laws, driving them to other parts of Scotland or even Canada, the United States and Australia. In the 20th century, Edinburgh, Glasgow and many other parts of Scotland have firmly established themselves as major tourist destinations, while the country is now governed by the Scottish Parliament in a shift away from power in Westminster. In 2014, the Scottish people voted to remain part of the United Kingdom in a Referendum.

Must-know info for families

If you have children and you’re moving to a new home in Scotland, it’s good to know there are top-rated schools located right across the country. The best schools in Scotland include Kelvinside Academy, Glasgow High School, Jordanhill School and St Aloysius’ College in Glasgow, St Ninian’s High School and Mearns Castle High School in East Renfrewshire, St Margaret’s School for Girls in Aberdeen, Mary Erskine School, Boroughmuir High School and George Heriot’s School in Edinburgh, Dollar Academy in Clackmannanshire, Dunblane High School in Stirling and Douglas Academy in East Dunbartonshire.

For higher education, Scotland is home to the University of Edinburgh, the University of Glasgow, the University of St Andrews, the University of Strathclyde and the University of Aberdeen. Other institutions include Heriot-Watt University, the University of the West of Scotland, the University of Dundee and the University of Stirling.

Places to see and things to do

There’s lots for the whole family to see and do right across Scotland, including the National Museum of Scotland, Arthur’s Seat and the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Pollok Country Park in Glasgow, Duthie Winter Gardens and the Maritime Museum in Aberdeen, and The Highlanders’ Museum in Inverness.

In the countryside, children of all ages will love discovering castles, lochs and mountains, including Ben Nevis, Urquhart Castle, Loch Ness and Calanais Standing Stones, while the grown-ups enjoy taking a tour around Scotland’s many whisky distilleries.

What about business?

Scotland is a vast country home to both big companies and small, cutting-edge businesses. Some of the most recognisable names in business include the Royal Bank of Scotland, Scottish and Southern Energy, Standard Life and Lloyds Banking Group, while Tesco Personal Finance are also headquartered in Scotland. Other businesses based in the country include William Grant and Sons, Pringle of Scotland, Farmfoods and BBC Scotland.

For travel

For commuters, there is a good railway system connecting Scotland’s major towns and cities, including Glasgow and Edinburgh with a journey time of 50 minutes. For car travel there are a number of motorways in the south of the country, such as the M8, M9 and M74, while most of the roads in northern regions are smaller A roads, with no motorways found north of Perth.

Travelling further afield, there are regular trains from Scotland to London including a sleeper service which takes around 7 hours 30 minutes to reach the UK capital from Edinburgh. If you’re travelling abroad, whether for business or pleasure, there are major airports in Edinburgh and Glasgow as well as Inverness and Aberdeen
