City house prices blow

CAPITAL homes are the second least affordable in Scotland, according to a new report.

The Bank of Scotland Affordable Cities Review found that the average price of property in the city was 5.74 times the average annual full-time earnings.

Stirling was named the most affordable, while Inverness was found to be the least.
