Pros and Cons of living in Scotland

Finding out the honest pros and cons of living in Scotland could be difficult. For people who've lived here their whole life, they have nothing to compare it with. I've lived in several different countries and travelled a lot, so I have some ideas of what people from other regions might find different, or unusual. I'm going to share that information in this blog post.

I was speaking to an American friend the other day who was talking about her experiences living in our small(ish) town in Scotland. I'm going to be brutally honest, her thoughts were not all positive. I often wonder if she knew what she was getting into when she decided to move here. So if you're curious about what it's like to live in Scotland, here is the truth.

♥♥♥ I've added a "follow" option on this blog for people who want to know when there are new posts, but don't want to have to check every five minutes to find out.

Just add your email address and it will take you to a third party app (feedburner) that will update you when I post something new. It'll only send you notices of new posts, nothing else, and I will NOT send email addresses on to third parties, just use it for this update notice alone.

Thanks!

If you're like most people, your home has a narrow hallway and a bit of wasted space under the stairs. You might have already done something with that space, but if you are scratching your head looking for some ideas, we've found some great inspiration from around the web so you can see what is possible. The great thing is that these ideas can be used in other small, cramped spaces around your house that are currently sitting in need of some help!
