A New Beginning: Moving from England to Scotland

Moving to a new place gives you an opportunity to experience a whole new world. It’s a chance to start anew, explore a different environment, and experience diverse cultures. For some, moving to another country altogether is the ultimate adventure. If you’re in England, you really don’t have to go that far to enjoy a new beginning, as Scotland is just a stone’s throw away.

With its stunning scenery, rich history, and friendly people, Scotland offers a relatable yet unique lifestyle that appeals to many English expats. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at what it’s like to move from England to Scotland and how one can start a new beginning in this beautiful country.

Finding a Place to Call Home: Uvie Farm

When moving to Scotland, the first thing to consider is where to live. The good news is that Scotland has plenty of options when it comes to housing. Whether you’re looking for a city apartment or a rural farmstead, there is something for everyone. For those seeking a taste of country living, Uvie Farm is a perfect choice.

Located in the heart of the Scottish Highlands, Uvie Farm is the perfect getaway to soak up all that Scotland has to offer. Uvie Farm offers the chance to experience traditional Scottish rural living and enjoy the natural beauty of the area without compromising on the convenience of modern day life.

With a variety of contemporary buildings, including the Roundhouse and Crofthouse, Uvie Farm is an ideal place to settle in and start a new life. What’s more, it benefits from good broadband speeds and is close to the Caledonian Sleeper train line, so travelling back down to England is a breeze.

Exploring the Scottish Countryside

One of the biggest draws of Scotland is its stunning countryside. From the rugged Highlands to the rolling hills of the Borders, Scotland’s natural beauty is unrivalled. As a new resident, exploring the Scottish countryside is a must.

Whether it’s a hike in the Cairngorms or a stroll along the beaches of the Outer Hebrides, there is always something new to discover in Scotland.

One of the best ways to explore Scotland’s countryside is by taking part in outdoor activities. From fishing and kayaking to mountain biking and horse riding, there is no shortage of things to do.

Uvie Farm offers guests the chance to get to know the iconic Hairy Cows or Highland Cattle which is an excellent way to connect with Scotland’s rural community.

Immersing Yourself in Scottish Culture

Moving to Scotland is not just about experiencing its stunning landscapes but also about immersing yourself in its rich culture. From the traditional Highland games to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Scotland has a vibrant cultural scene that is celebrated year-round.

As a new resident, taking part in these events is an excellent way to get involved in the local community and learn more about Scotland’s heritage.

Food is also an essential part of Scottish culture, and there are plenty of traditional dishes to try. Haggis, neeps, and tatties is a classic Scottish meal, and you can find them on the menu at many restaurants throughout the country. There is a rich fish based menu  including Cullen skink, Cullen Bay crab, and smoked salmon, while all manner of fresh fish is brought to local villages from the fisheries of the east coast. 


Adapting to Scottish Weather

One thing that newcomers to Scotland should be prepared for is the weather. Scotland is known for its rainy and often unpredictable weather, and it’s not uncommon to experience all four seasons in one day. However, with the right clothing and mindset, adapting to Scottish weather can be an enjoyable part of the experience.

Investing in good quality outdoor clothing is essential for staying warm and dry in Scotland’s wet climate. Waterproof jackets and sturdy hiking boots are a must for exploring the countryside and layering up with warm jumpers and scarves is essential for staying cosy during the colder months.
