Welcome to Scotland

From cosmopolitan cities to remote countryside, Scotland is a diverse country with something for everyone to enjoy, including the capital Edinburgh, the largest city Glasgow, and the likes of Aberdeen, Inverness, Dundee, Stirling and Perth. Whether you love hiking in the great outdoors, browsing boutique shops or watching world-class comedy shows, your new home in Scotland will place you right at the heart of this historic land.

A quick history

Uninhabited in the Ice Age, Scotland became a home for neolithic hunting tribes and small farming communities. Later the Picts, who lived in round huts, were defeated by the Romans in 80AD, while the Vikings invaded in the 9th century. In the 11th century, MacBeth overthrew King Duncan in what inspired one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.

Once a kingdom in its own right, in 1707 Scotland became part of Great Britain under the rule of James VI King of Scots. Then, in the 19th century, many Highlanders were forced off their land and emigrated by sea to Canada and the United States. Although there was a lot of unemployment in 1920s and 1930s Scotland, the country is now thriving under the Scottish Parliament, which was set up in 1997.

Businesses and industry

Today’s Scotland is a hub for all kinds of businesses, spanning financial services, North Sea oil and gas, electronics manufacturing and energy. There’s also a growing media and marketing sector, especially in the cities, while the rural areas are home to the heritage industry of whisky distilling.

Some of Scotland’s biggest and most well-known employers include the Royal Bank of Scotland, the Bank of Scotland, Scottish and Southern Energy and Standard Life. John Wood Group, Weir Group and Aegon also operate from Scotland, while other well-known names include William Grant & Sons, Drambuie, Lloyds Banking Group, Tesco Personal Finance, Rockstar North, Pringle of Scotland, BBC Scotland and Farmfoods.

Things to do in the area

As such a vast country, there are plenty of things to see and do across all areas of Scotland. In the capital, popular sights include Edinburgh Castle, Arthur’s Seat, the National Museum of Scotland and the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. Over in Glasgow, make sure you visit the Botanic Gardens, Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, and Glasgow Science Centre. In Aberdeen, top sights include Aberdeen Maritime Museum, The Gordon Highlanders Museum and Duthie Park Winter Gardens.

If you love discovering history, pay a visit to Urquhart Castle, Dunrobin Castle, Calanais Standing Stones and Skara Brae prehistoric village on the Orkneys. If you’re feeling adventurous, take a road trip through the Highlands on the North Coast 500, visiting distilleries, fishing villages and lochs along the way. Other places of interest in Scotland include Loch Ness, Ben Nevis, the Palace of Holyroodhouse, and John O’Groats.

Travel and commuting

The main motorway into Scotland is the A74(M) and M74, leading to the outskirts of Glasgow. The M8 connects Glasgow and Edinburgh, while other motorways in the south of the country include the M9 between Stirling and Edinburgh, and the M90 between Edinburgh and Perth. There are no motorways north of Perth, with the busiest road being the A9 between Perth and Inverness.

As for public transport, you can take a bus, train or plane from the country’s largest cities. There’s a sleeper rail service from Glasgow and Edinburgh to London, with a journey time of 7 and a half hours, and the East and West Coast railways connect Scotland’s major cities with smaller towns. Domestic and international flights depart from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Inverness airports, while there are ferries from the Scottish mainland to the islands, and across the North Sea to Belgium.
