The friendly Scottish society, proud traditions, straight forward ways and great sense of humour, offer wonderful traits to live with.
Canadians understand harsh winters. Scots too embrace the reality of being hardy and also the beauty of nature, especially when the sun comes out or their Northern Lights shine. Scots also live next door to a dominant neighbour they differentiate themselves from... the English.
Moving to Scotland, for a 6 month season or with a longer term visa, offers world class, densely populated, expensive cities, like Edinburgh or rural less populated, more cost effective country living.
Of the 5.5 million population, 70% live in the central area around Edinburgh and Glasgow. Roads connecting the central area to the rest of Scotland tend to be narrow with unexpected pot holes. It is roads like those that focus on why how Bekins packs for international moves is important. Standard packing done by 'local' movers is not considerate of the extra jostling. Plus there are the transfers from truck to rail to ship and customs storage. A lot to absorb on the way to a new international destination.
