Price: £29,750

Bedrooms: One

• This small but perfectly formed cottage is situated in the pretty seaside town of Girvan, just 20 miles from Ayr.

Price: £30,000

Bedrooms: One

Price: £35,000

Bedrooms: Two

• A modern double-glazed, two-bedroom flat in a converted courthouse right beside a 13th-century castle.

Price: £35,000

Bedrooms: One

• Alloa is a charming wee town in central Scotland, nestled at the foot of the Ochil Hills.

Price: £35,000

Price: £33,995

Price: £27,500
