Scotland is a great and beautiful country. the country did not sow the seeds of hatred and division which has turn Scotland into the shit hole of a country we have right now. it is the politicians and media who are responsible for it being a shit hole. and hopefully most of them will be gone soon enough. and Scotland can start to get back to being a great and beautiful country once again for everybody who calls Scotland home.
I was born in Springburn and spent my days growing up in Hospital st in the Gorbals 1940-50-60S. Your right you know Glasgow was great and beautiful then, we had wonderful slums the healthiest rats and ugliest tarriers you've ever seen . I for one am so glad to have escaped the shitpit many many yrs ago.

Work took me South 35 years ago and all I miss is not being able to get up and see my team. On the few occasions I have been back the country is not the one I grew up in. When I am there it has made me feel how fortunate I am not to have to live there

Rangers, scenery, water, food, standard of living (generally), education (deteriorating under the secessionists).

There are many more things but all are overshadowed by the snp and greens and their desire to end the union plus their anti Rangers policies. So sadly the M74 south and the A1 south are the most appealing things to any Unionist.

Scotland is a beautiful country with some real characters who can bring a smile even on the bleakest of days .....
If we don't find the solution to all live together and respect each other , I fear we have not witnessed the worst that the aftermath of the "once in a lifetime" independence vote has left us with .
Some people will never accept democracy.
Until they do we are left with a divided
nation .
This manufactured situation to breakaway from our closest allies is an insult to all those who gave up their lives so we could all live in peace and together.
I've been lucky in my life to have travelled extensively and what I've witnessed tells me that Scotland is a beautiful country with great people and we are very fortunate to have the chances that we have in life .
The people make Scotland , always have and always will , it's time to appreciate who we are and what great privileges we have.
The propaganda machines that are fuelling divide need stopped and only the characters of Scotland can say enough is enough...

I'm not so sure. The stars are in alignment for them. I've 'friends' who were No. Some are swithering, some are Yes.

Really?. After seeing what’s happening with the uk trying to leave a Union we’ve been in for decades and seeing the total clusterfeck that’s become your “friends” think it would be a good idea to separate from the rest of the uk?. A union which we have been a part of for centuries. Sorry but absolutely batshit crazy.

Scotland used to be a fantastic place to live unfortunately it has become a dark miserable shell of itself, the SNP, the unwashed, the mass immigration turning parts of the city into 3rd world shitholes, the fat tattooed ladies (my dad used to take me to the circus to see them, now they are everywhere) only reason I ever set foot in the place is to see the mighty Rangers.

Went on a few trips this year including one to darkest Africa. A wee trip to Oban reinforced my opinion that I live in the most beautiful country in the world.

Scotland has its faults but there are far worse places to live.

I spend a fair amount of time working away in either the USA or China. I actually really like China but still prefer coming home to Scotland.

Get this straight, the SNP is not Scotland. Nor is the BBC. So many turning their back on their own country rather than fighting for it. Spineless or what? I can see our Ulster brethren referring to NI as a shit hole because SF have a big say in their country or because they have a large number of unwashed in their midst. Aye right they would. Some on here should grow a pair and stop acting like wee lassies.

Avoid the east end of Glasgow? So don't go to Brigton, Duke Street with the original Louden, Bristol Bar etc? That east end? Away and lie doon.

Have to say I dislike threads like this. I am Scottish and fucking proud of it. I cannot wait till our national team is full of Rangers players once again and I can be proud of supporting it. The two are not unconnected.

Our club was born to compete in Scotland and rejuvenated a few years later to be the epitome of Scotland and exemplify our nation against incomers trying to buy success. Our nation then was Scotland and Britain. It still is. Those who dislike the SFA are justified though it breaks my heart. Those who dislike Scotland betray our history as much as those who dislike Britain. And both betray the unionist cause.
Where is it you live?

The scenery until houses started sprouting up everywhere take my dogs out where I stay 2 minutes that was you in the country not now posh £400000 houses with stamps for gardens see these home owners with them saying it's s beautiful walk my response you want to have walk here when there where no houses. The same folk moan about all the wildlife seem to forget they where there before you.
The attitude of the country has changed folk to much in a hurry driving like in the dodge ums the tolerance between folk is next to nothing and the P.C people can't smack your child, can't eat meat, can't say that and so on.
My youngest is 12 it doesn't give me hope for her and grandkids if I have any

Apart from the Gers and in no particular orderthe best water,whisky,fresh air,scenery,inventions,architecture,cities,lochs and history.
Yes we also have faults none more so than many of our civic leaders and politicians,however we have it in our own hands to change this via the ballot box which leads on to the most important thing we have,freedom of choice.
Nailed it

Doom and gloom mob are welcome to leave if Scotland is so shite. Scotland is a brilliant wee country.
Why do you think so many do leave, if it such a wonderful wee country? I left 20 years ago and only ever come back to see my old maw and Rangers. Otherwise I would never set foot in the country ever again.

It once was a wonderful wee country but now it is a hate-filled cesspit, where the indigenous Protestant population is targeted and is being ruled over by a bigoted/racist catholic and nationalist minority.

Loads of people leave for a variety of reasons. I'd say a lot more leave for work, better opportunities in life as opposed to because the SNP are in power or immigration (oddly enough you immigrated to another country) or the SFA, the fact that Peter Lawwell rules the world.

If it was such a wonderful wee country though, would it not have the better opportunities itself? People do leave for many reasons and it most certainly is no longer the nice place to live that it once was. The country is fatally divided and rotten to the core, with nepotism and corruption to the fore.

Scenery, history, sense of humour (none other like it anywhere else), fresh air........I could go on (and they’re all things to be proud of). But what lets it down for me is the inferiority complex we have, especially in relation to all things England. Also this nonsense that seems to be the fashion of the big bad British Empire that Scotland had nothing to do with.

And the SNP who are happy to drag the Education and Justice Systems to the gutter and the county as a whole.
