"Before retiring in Scotland, expats should familiarize themselves with the local culture and customs. They should also research the cost of living in the area they plan to retire in, as well as the availability of healthcare and other services. Additionally, expats should consider the climate and weather conditions in Scotland, as well as the local transportation options. It is also important to research the visa and residency requirements for expats in Scotland. Finally, expats should consider the language barrier, as English is the primary language spoken in Scotland," said a member in Scotland.
