The street, close to the First Minister’s official residence, was followed in the list by Caledonian Crescent on the exclusive Gleneagles Golf Course, Auchterarder, and Whitehouse Terrace in Edinburgh, with average house prices of £1,591,927 and £1,520,685 respectively.

Milltimber, a suburb near Aberdeen, topped the website’s list of highest valued towns and neighbourhoods in Scotland, with house prices averaging at £432,421.
Following closely were Humbie and North Berwick, both in East Lothian, which came second and third with average property prices of £388,076 and £313,556.
While the east of the country fared well in Zoopla’s lists, the west were slightly behind, with Glasgow failing to make the website’s top 20 most valuable streets or neighbourhoods.
In the survey Bearsden in the East Dunbartonshire area took 20th place.
Nicholas Leeming from Zoopla.co.uk said: “The Scottish residential property market boasts some extraordinary homes and whilst house prices on average are lower than other parts of Britain, in Scotland you get a lot more bang for your buck.
“For example in London’s most expensive neighbourhood, Kensington, an area the size of a iPad will set you back over £550, while in Milltimber, Scotland’s most expensive area, the same floor space costs just £124.”
