    I know it's a bit far ... but I envisaged moving to Scotland long time ago so it's more like a dream come truth 😃 And anyway 12 years ago I moved over from abroad so I have a slight idea of what it is like 😁

    Have you got an idea on the rental market within a commuting distance of Inverness? I am either going to look for a private room just for myself or a small house or a flat with a garden if my husband will join me from the beginning ( we also have 2 doggies and a cat which makes things a little more difficult when it comes to landlords:-(
    Wow, it seems like a bid change for you too.... so what made you come back to dentistry if you don't mind me asking?

    Good choice, it's great living up here

    Aw, I have two dogs as well, no cat though! What breed have you got? There are lots of places within 20 minutes/half an hour of Inverness that you'll find places to rent. I live on the Black Isle which is about 20 minutes away and pretty rural - It's great for dog walking. There are loads of places in Inverness as well, Culloden is pretty close to the hospital. Try gumtree for renting and the local papers' websites, the Highland News and Inverness Courier.

    Yes, a bit of a change for me too! I had to withdraw from health-related studies because of my own health :/ Really looking forward to getting back into it

    What is your name? Sorry I haven't asked before I'm Eliza.

    I only had about an hour after my interview so I could look around, and I liked what I have seen. I love the nature and Inverness seems to be very peaceful

    I have border terriers ❤; we love country walks so really looking forward to moving over!!
    I have looked at accommodation on gumtree already but I think it's a bit early still thanks for the tip about the local papers I'll definitely look at some ads there too

    I will be coming over to Inverness before the course starts to do the proper recognisance what is the transport link to the hospital? Can you rely on a bus or is a car better?

    Hi, I'm looking at courses in oral health sciences and dental hygiene. how competitive are the courses? Could anyone tell me the type of questions that they ask in interviews and what the application process was like for you?
