The Sunday Times Rich List 2012 is compiled by Philip Beresford, the leading authority on British wealth. The list is based on identifiable wealth, land, property, other assets such as art and racehorses, or significant shares in publicly quoted companies, and does not include the cash in their bank accounts, meaning the true level of their wealth could be even higher.

Scotland's richest people got richer over the last year, with a record number of billionaires. There are more Scots among Britain's wealthiest people than ever before, with 74 joining the ranks in the 2012 list, compared to 70 the previous year.
