Ricky Diggins, director at Bank of Scotland, said: “Although Scotland’s most exclusive addresses have seen some exciting movement this year, prices have remained steady, with the average house price of £1,276,200 in the top 20 compared to £1,286,200 last year.

“Despite conceding the top spot to St Andrews, the capital continues to dominate the table of the most expensive streets and more broadly has strong average house prices.

“This year Glasgow has created some new entries on the leader board, showing encouraging signs for the market in the city and surrounding areas.”

Oakhill Grange in Aberdeen makes it into the top 20 for the first time with an average house price of £1.276 million, while a house in Rubislaw Den South costs on average £1.171 million.

In the west, Kingsborough Gardens in Hyndland has become Glasgow’s newly crowned most expensive street with a property there costing £1.140 million.

Other entries classed as Glasgow include the suburb of Bearsden, the second most expensive address in the area, with a property in Manse Road costing £1.123 million on average.

Castle Avenue in Uddingston is in third place (£1.093 million) in the Glasgow area, while Woodhead Drive in Bothwell is a new entry with an average house price of just over £1 million (£1.092 million).
