There was widespread astonishment north of the border today when Edinburgh was named the most miserable place to live in the United Kingdom.
In a new study by university researchers, the capital occupies bottom spot out of 273 locations across the country, today’s Scotsman reports.
"This may come as a surprise to festival-goers, or tourists who only see Princes Street and the Georgian splendours of the New Town. But not to anyone acquainted with the drug-fuelled deprivation of the 1970s housing schemes built around the city’s outskirts when the old tenement buildings were cleared", says Michael McCarthy in the Independent.
What do you think of the report? Is Edinburgh the most miserable place in the country? Post your thoughts.
