Scottish Building Society

We started life in 1848 as the Edinburgh Property Investment Company. And we’re now the oldest remaining building society in the World. As a member-based mutual, our focus and purpose is to serve our local communities. That’s why we offer savings accounts and mortgages primarily to members resident in Scotland.


We’re committed to supporting worthy causes in Scottish communities and embracing diversity. Members are given a vote to choose which charities we’ll support. And our colleagues are encouraged to help out, either by donating their time for charity work or through their own fund-raising.

Today we offer a wide range of savings and mortgage products that are regularly reviewed to meet our members’ needs.

Our personal and flexible approach means we consider personal circumstances and needs when underwriting mortgages.

Our savings products are designed to help our members reach their financial goals, whether that’s saving for something special or putting money away for the future.
