Investing 70,000 at 53 years old

Im a UK citizen ; tax payer too . 70,000 to invest safely as possible . Im no gambler as the money did not come easily .
I was thinking of buying a flat to rent out but as I live overseas this seems like a fair bit of hassle and I could be faced with big bills for repairs evictions etc . Plus I have zero experience in the field .
How should I invest it? I would like to get as much monthly return as possible and have the lump sum available when Im older . I have contacted IFAs in the UK but they all want to have an in person meeting with me . But Im overseas at the moment
Thanks for any suggestions .
