DUNDEE NAMED BEST PLACE TO LIVE IN SCOTLAND
DUNDEE NAMED BEST PLACE TO LIVE IN SCOTLAND BY THE SUNDAY TIMES
Scotland’s sunniest city has made it to the top spot beating nine other Scottish locations listed in the Sunday Times 2019 Best Place to Live Guide.
“Being named Scotland’s Best Place to Live 2019 by The Sunday Times is further recognition that Dundee is a thriving and exciting city,” said Councillor John Alexander, Dundee City Council leader and spokesperson for Dundee’s One City Many Discoveries campaign.
The judges in the annual Best Place to Live awards take into account much more than the mantra of location, location, location.
Appealing and affordable housing, access to good schools and low crime rates are taken into account when deciding on the winner of the Best Place to Live, as are attractive parks and green spaces, accessible cultural activities, good transport links and a strong sense of community spirit – all areas where Dundee scores high in official statistics.
The judges combine market research data with their own experience and insight to ensure the chosen locations truly are places where everyone can thrive.
Helen Davies, The Sunday Times Home editor said: Finding our very own best place to live now feels more important than ever, for our wellbeing and wealth, happiness and health. The Sunday Times has championed locations across the UK that we think are a great place to make a home.”
We say: There are many reasons Dundee’s been named Scotland’s Best Place to Live but for the most obvious, take a walk by the river. Only minutes from the city centre, seals, seabirds and dolphins can be seen from the banks of the River Tay – how many people can enjoy such a spectacular lunch break?
