Whether you're saving for a rainy day or investing for the long term we have a range of savings accounts to help you achieve your goals.

We are Scotland’s Building Society

The Scottish Building Society is the World’s oldest remaining building society, established in 1848.

As a member-based mutual, our focus and purpose is to serve our local communities. That’s why we offer savings accounts primarily to members resident in Scotland. And why we will only consider new lending on residential properties in Scotland.
