Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Scotland accepting of differences?
When we asked people about diversity in Scotland and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...
"Scotland is a diverse country with a wide range of ethnicities, religions, and cultures. People in Scotland are generally accepting of differences and are welcoming to people from all backgrounds. Scotland has a long history of immigration, and this has helped to create a vibrant and diverse culture. Scotland is also home to a number of minority groups, including the Scottish Travellers, who have their own distinct culture and traditions. Scotland is a place where people of all backgrounds can feel accepted and respected," said another expat in Scotland.
"I've met several families that have relocated here from the states. As for the locals, everyone I have met seem very open to diversity. They sometimes have this feel that we're all decedents from Scotland," wrote a member who made the move to Banchory, Scotland.
We've partnered with Homelike, to connect expats and newcomers with temporary accommodations in Scotland. If you're moving to Scotland, rent a short-term, furnished apartment or home for the first few months from Homelike and take your time figuring out the best place to live in Scotland.
