As one of the oldest banks in the UK dating back to the 16th Century the Royal Bank of Scotland was founded by Royal Charter in 1727 from an amalgamation of 200 smaller private banks.

In 1970 the bank merged with another Scottish bank based in Edinburgh called the National Commercial Bank of Scotland which was formerly the National Bank of Scotland and the Commercial Bank of Scotland accounting for over 40% of Scotlands banking business. The Royal Bank continued with its expansion plans by taking over Nat West bank in 2000. This was the biggest takeover in the history of British banking, although Nat West still operates as a seperate brand.

Following the takeover of National Westminster Bank the Royal Bank of Scotland Group is one of the world's leading financial services providers with offices worldwide. It is the second largest bank in Europe and by capitalisation the fifth largest bank in the world.

The bank has a full offering of mortgages for first time buyers through to those looking to remortgage and the products include discounted rate mortgages, flexible choice mortgages, offset flexible and fixed rate mortgages and for the property investor buy to let mortgages.
