There's a huge £184 million up for grabs in tonight’s EuroMillions lottery draw and the first item on the winner’s wishlist is likely to be a dream home.
Even the most expensive property in Scotland is unlikely to make much of a dent in the jackpot – with the winner leapfrogging the previous UK lottery winner who scooped £170 million in October 2019.
Whitehouse Terrace, in Edinburgh, was recently revealed to be the most expensive place in Scotland to buy a house with an average property price of £3.4 million.
So, even in this most pricey of streets, the EuroMillions winner would be able to buy 54 houses and have enough change left over to build a couple of extensions.
Here are 7 properties in Scotland that are currently on the market that would make a worthy first purchase for a newly-minted millionaire.
