Chasing your dreams by travelling to far flung places around the globe in search of adventure or new beginnings doesn’t necessarily mean you’re leaving behind a sad and dreary life or a place where the grass doesn’t grow as green. It could be for a variety of reasons. Ours was to escape the long dark winters and the all too often wet summers to embrace new culture and feel the sun on our face.
For those living elsewhere, Scotland has much to offer with a thriving tourist industry welcoming thousands of visitors each year.
