Do you dream of living in Scotland?

I know from personal experience and by speaking with others, people move overseas for many reasons.

Our articles will help a variety of people who:

  • Have dreamed of living in Scotland and the UK.
  • Think moving overseas will help them escape the ordinary.
  • Want to discover what expat life offers (before spending time and money).
  • Are ready to consider an overseas move (solo, as a couple or with a family).
  • Have started looking into what is involved in becoming a UK resident.
  • Have relocated but want to make the most of their UK adventure.
  • Are Commonwealth citizens with a grandparent born in the UK. You may be eligible to apply for a UK Ancestry Visa so you can live and work in the UK for 5 years. You can then apply for permanent UK residency and 1 year later, UK citizenship.

We would love to help you:

  • Know if moving to Scotland is right for you.
  • Obtain a genuine understanding of the pros and cons of living in Scotland.
  • Create your own relocation and settlement plan.
  • Expand your opportunities for happiness and success.
  • Improve your chance to secure permanent UK residency (if that is your goal).

If you already live in Scotland, do you truly appreciate the magic around you?

Whether you were born in Scotland or moved here from another land (or from across the world like we did), let us help you discover the unexpected treasures around you - in Scotland, Europe or the rest of the world.

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
