Would you rather live in trendy North London, or enjoy the fresh air of Scotland?

In better news, the study's shown that Scottish women are overall the happiest: topping the ranks to be crowned the best place in the United Kingdom to live for women was East Dunbartonshire in Scotland, which scored high in areas including education, equal pay and quality of the local environment.

The best place for a woman to live in Great Britain is in Scotland, according to analysis carried out for the BBC Radio 4 programme Woman's Hour.

The area is home to handsome natural spaces including Loch Lomond National Park and the Campsie Fells, and residents are among the happiest and least anxious in the UK.

The analysis, conducted by National Centre for Social Research, was used to rank all British Local Authorities from best to worst.

As list topper, East Dunbartonshire ranked high for education, environmental quality, wellbeing and income. Or is having family and friends nearby what women value most? Islington was named the number one worst place to live for women due to its unaffordable housing, large gender pay gap, and low levels of life satisfaction and happiness amongst female inhabitants.

Women's Hour will be broadcast from East Dunbartonshire tomorrow (Wednesday, September 13), with Jane Garvie asking local women about how they feel about their neighbourhood.
