A Scottish welcome

Contrary to what some may think, English people generally settle well in Scotland:
'The idea that there are little groups of English people being persecuted in Scotland doesn't seem to hold at all. '
It seems as though English people in Scotland see problems in the same places as do Scots:
English composer Dave Heath moved to Scotland with his partner, Angela Tunstall, in 1993 to work with the BT Scottish Ensemble. They eventually settled in Edinburgh with their children in 1997. Any anti-English sentiment Heath has experienced has tended to be within the press -- and primarily related to football
I remember many, many people up here saying during the World Cup that they had no problem with the English team or the English fans but couldn't stand the English media.
