Living in Scotland
Many people have been drawn to Scotland by the career opportunities but also by the appeal of enhancing their quality of life. House prices can be cheaper, the commuting is easier and the countryside offers a wide range of activities from skiing and white-water rafting, to mountain biking and walking in some of the most spectacular scenery you will find anywhere in the world. And, of course, there is the golf!
All the major Scottish cities have good public transport links, such as train lines and bus routes, reducing your need to use a car.
If you like to live in the countryside, there are many towns and villages that are within an hour’s commute of many of Scotland's business centres.
Another great thing about Scotland is the extra daylight in summer. It can remain quite light up to 11.30pm – leaving plenty of time to get out and about after work. You could be walking in the hills or taking a late-night stroll on one of Scotland's many beaches - some of which are within 40 minutes of Glasgow and Edinburgh – and, in Aberdeen, the sea is on your very doorstep.
