Thanks, all!

I'm glad you're moving back to the East coast. What's the housing market like in Edinburgh at the moment? Lachlan is waiting to hear back from Edinburgh uni so if he gets an offer we'll be down for a look round.

When I was at the stage you're at with a young family, my husband and I were both working full time and my priority was that a house should be easily accessible for work and for childcare/school options (not necessarily the catchment area of a single good school, as schools can change in a flash and not every child will do best in an Ofsted-Outstanding school), which I suppose is C2.
