55: Top of the Hill

No wonder East Lothian needs the affordable homes that the SNP are building—and fast. After 13 years of Labour’s “egalitarian” rule, the divide between ‘haves’ and ‘have nots’ is greater than ever and nowhere more so than here.

The Hootsmon has just published the top ten streets in the country where houses sell for ‘Monopoly money’ i.e. over £1m. Three Edinburgh postcodes lead the parade: Belmont Drive EH12, Ettrick Road EH10 & Dick Place. In fourth place—well ahead of anywhere in Glasgow or Aberdeen—was the only non-city address: Hill Road, Gullane EH31.

Where the butler lives is anyone’s guess but it’s unlikely to be in Hummel Road either.
