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.

Here are 7 properties in Scotland that are currently on the market that would make a worthy first purchase for a newly-minted millionaire.
