An East Lothian village has been named among the country’s poshest places to live and is one of only four Scottish locations featured on the list.

Research carried out by Savills, for The Telegraph, has uncovered the UK’s poshest villages, with factors such as the highest house prices, best lifestyle amenities, how connected they are via transport links and their ‘chocolate box’ appeal having been taken into consideration. The list includes 54 villages that were deemed “most desirable” in terms of cost and the lifestyle they offer.
