Is equity release your route to an adventure?
From adventure holidays to more stay-at-home pastimes, such as learning a new language or DIY, there is scope for a lot of fun.
Many retired Scots are funding their retirement dreams thanks to their property wealth.
Research from over-55 financial specialists Key Retirement revealed that equity release has boosted Scottish property owners’ retirement finances by more than £86million in the last year.
And of the 1600 Scots who used equity release plans to unlock cash tied up in their homes, 16 per cent used it to fund holidays.
