In all of these areas Scotland is significantly different to research from the rest of the UK, so this will likely be quite an eye opener if you are only used to using ScotlandsPeople, or have only tackled English, Irish or Welsh research before (or overseas!). Lots of fun and games, though kilts are not supplied!
