2. Or if you fancy more city living you could move to Edinburgh and live in this grand flat.

How much? £200,000.

Where? Newington, Edinburgh.

How many bedrooms? One

Pros? A lot of pine, so if there's an apocalyptic revolution then you'll have quite a lot of firewood to keep you warm.


4. You could spend the rest of your days in this little cottage in the middle of nowhere.

How much? £295,000.

Where? Fort Augustus, Inverness-shire.

How many bedrooms? Four.

Pros? It's next to a fresh water stream so when our infrastructure fails you should still have a source of drinking water.

5. You could forget about your normal job and just warn people about dangerous rocks in this lighthouse.

How much? £300,000.

Where? Hoy, Orkney.

How many bedrooms? Seven.

Pros? If you fancy turning to a life of crime then you could just turn the lighthouse off and watch things crash and then rob the wrecks of their goods. That would be a bad idea though, don't do that.

6. You could run this guesthouse that overlooks a massive loch that runs into the sea.

How much? £365,000.
