The Scores Is Scotland's Most Expensive Residential Street

Granted it hasn't been golf course frontage real estate in over 300 years, but the views are spectacular and it ends at the Old Course first tee, so we know this is mostly golf's doing. Still, even knowing The Scores lacks  the errant ball issue, it was still fascinating to read that The Scores in St. Andrews is Scotland's priciest neighborhood. Average property price: nearly £2.1 million.

From a Sunday Herald story:

Researchers from the Bank of Scotland say the cliff top street The Scores, which starts at the first tee of the Old Course, has knocked addresses in Edinburgh off the top spot for the first time in their annual survey.

Lined with Victorian detached and terraced houses, the street has unrivalled views of St Andrews Bay and the North Sea.

It is named after scratches on the basalt cliff face which it overlooks.
