    The Scottish capital is without a doubt one of the best places to live in the UK. From its imposing castle and incredible history, to the fantastic and beautiful New and Old Towns of the centre, Edinburgh is every bit the charming hub for residents and visitors alike. Proudly attracting tourists from around the world, as well as providing the very best in local life for families who make a home here, Edinburgh is a perfect location to find a new home.

    The city, set on the south bank of the Firth of Forth, is the 7th largest in the UK. With a population count of around 495,360, the city of Edinburgh is a bustling metropolis but is in no way overpopulated. In fact, there are 122 parks and plenty of green space for residents to explore. As greenery goes, there are more trees per head of population than any other UK city! The city centre is also well-maintained throughout, with excellent transport links and a whole host of things to see and do.

    Edinburgh is a listed World Heritage Site, renowned for being the City of Literature, and it has been named as ‘The Best Place to Live and Work in Scotland’ in a national survey for the fifth year running. It has low unemployment rates and high salaries, as well as affordable housing compared to many other major capitals. For young couples, families with children, or first time buyers in search of new homes, Edinburgh makes a great choice – particularly when it comes to cost and standard of living.
