We asked people if there is a lot of crime. They answered...

"Scotland has a relatively low crime rate compared to other countries. However, there are still some areas of Scotland that experience higher levels of crime than others. Violent crime, such as assault and robbery, is relatively rare in Scotland, but there are still some areas where it is more common. Drug-related crime is also an issue in some parts of Scotland, particularly in the larger cities. In addition, there has been an increase in cybercrime in recent years, with criminals using the internet to commit fraud and other offences," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Scotland.
