Property or savings investment

Hi, i have £100,000 not doing much earning at moment, because I'm currently debating on whether to buy a house and rent it to generate an income, or whether to invest elsewhere for the same goal.
Some of this pot is invested in an ISA not fixed so easily accessible, are then any good funds around that would give me a good returns.
Advice and ideas would be gratefully appreciated .

    You could by shares in Grainger (GRI) with a market cap of £I bn and they are the biggest buy to let landlord in the country. Let them have the hassle of dealing with tennants while you collect the income and capital appreciation, subject of course to the housing market generally.

    And read some of the threads on MSE here about renting and becoming a landlord. It can be quite complex and stressful. Not something to be undertaken lightly. FWIW I was planning on investing about 200K in a property to rent but after reading about it I am getting increasingly put off. If you think it is as simple as "buy a property, rent it, make money" you could be mistaken......

    I would spread the £100k across various investments, passive S&S ISA funds, emerging market funds, physical precious metals, cryptocurrencies and fixed rate cash saving accounts to name a few
