Scotland Reviews

Scotland is a nice town to live in if you want a moderate country style lifestyle. Unless you have a car, you cannot get anywhere. There are no shopping malls in town and the closest one does not provide many shops. The majority of the population is extremely white (not to be racist) and there is very low diversity. There are no public transportation systems and even services like Uber are not popular. Because of its size, it is very hard to distinguish were Scotland ends and the nearby city, Chambersburg, starts. There is also this one boarding school that is populated with about 90% Koreans which is basically the only other diverse race in the area. But in general, if you desire a quiet, and country-style life, Scotland is the place for you!

Boring as hell. There is simply nothing to do at all. At least I'm not living there for long. Scotland is so small and simply all farms
