I'm a Scot, currently living in Aberdeen. Moved here for work with partner 18 months ago and we're not crazy about it - lots of lovely features but doesn't really feel like 'us' - and it can feel a bit isolated and small so we fancy a change. Previously lived in Edinburgh for several years, we really liked it and may go back at some point but want to test out other places first. Between the other half and I we've also lived in Stirling, Bristol, Birmingham and Northamptonshire. Need somewhere with a proper city and bit of a cosmopolitan city feel to it - lots of art and culture, but not too far from countryside and good riding. Bristol, Manchester and Glasgow currently being considered... OH not keen on that there London.
