Scotland is home to more millionaires than London

SCOTLAND has the wealthiest neighbourhoods in Britain, a new survey of millionaires' postcodes shows.

The research reveals that four of the top ten millionaires' neighbourhoods in the UK are north of the Border.

The figures show districts of Edinburgh and Aberdeen contain more residents in the financial elite than any area in London. The top postcode for millionaires in the UK is EH4 in Edinburgh, which includes Blackhall and Barnton.

EH4 is the home of 277 millionaires and is followed in second place by AB15 in Aberdeen, which contains 240 of them living in the Blacktop, Kingswells and Fairley districts.

Bearsden near Glasgow came seventh in the list, with 176 millionaires, while EH10 - Morningside in Edinburgh - was fifth, with 215.

The Millionaire Neighbourhood Report features the top 100 postcode areas where the UK's millionaires reside.

Hampstead, the top London area, appears in third position - behind the two top Scots addresses.
