    I live in England and want to live in England. I have this image in my head of Scotland as a place where it rains all the time. The weather is just miserable. Everyone in general is miserable and you have to walk miles to go to the nearest shop. :eek: It'll probably stay like that until the day I visit Scotland!

    theres nothing that particularly attracts me too Scotland, but I have nothing against it either.

    No I wouldnt move there just for its own sake, there would have been a compelling reason/extenuating circumstances

    to be honest I am very keen on the idea of leaving England in the near future, but I think I fancy sunnier climes..

    I'm English and I live in London. I'm going to Edinburgh Uni (hopefully) and it's more than possible that I'll stay up there after I graduate. So yes, I want to live in Scotland. I love it up there!

    I'm thinking of going to Edinburgh uni. Would make a bit of a change from rural southern English village life, and it looks great up there.

    I don't really understand? Do you mean if there were two sovereign countries and we had to decide where we wanted to live?

    If the United Kingdom was split up I wouldn't want to live here any more. I'd push off.

    No, I wasn't really paying attention to whether Scotland becomes independent or not.

    I'm probably going to university in England though, so I guess we'll see.

    I'm English born and bred, and attending university in Scotland next year (hopefully!). So yes, I would cross the border.

    I'd quite fancy moving to Scotland I think. I wouldn't feel really out of place there as all my dad's family is Scottish, so I've been going up and down for visits and such since I was tiny.

    Plus it's just, erm... nice. For want of a better word.

    I would indeed live in England if I took the inclination. I must admit though, the North holds no appeal to me. Living in London would, I imagine, be quite an experience, and most of the pleasant southern villages and towns would be more than adequate.

    That said, I don't feel I fit in to any of the poll categories. I am Scottish and I live in Scotland, where I'm quite happy; I have no reason to move, but would just as quickly move to England as to somewhere else in Scotland if I could find employment or had some other reason to do so.

    Ah, well, yes, I could see myself living there for a bit. But I do prefer the climate down south, and the politics.

    Absolutely adore Scotland - the people are more friendly, the atmosphere is more exciting, beautiful to look out, fantastic exciting cities.

    Im going to edinburgh next year hopefully - and ive always wanted to try and live there, literally for the rest of my life. Its the best city in the world!!

    (well, in my humble opinion, teehee, i havnt visited many but so far....)


    Edinburgh is even better out of the festival time as its not crawling with people.

    I would live in Scotland if I had a reason to. It's not exactly my plan but if I happened to get an offer on a good job then I would go for it. Would be cool to work on the next GTA game.
