Getting to know the locals

Hi there,

Last Easter we went on a holiday to Scotland.  It was ages ago we travelled, but I've always wanted to visit Scotland, so we did. Now we're back home, I really miss this fabulous country and its people. Therefor I'd like to stay in touch with some nice Scottish people with a simular life as ours. (37 years, maried, two childeren, middleclass) so we can chat.  Is there anyone here who can give me some advice on where I can find nice chatboxes to get to know Scottisch people (no dating sites, please...) ? 

Thanks a lot,

    Hi @Redtail you've come to the right place! We have plenty of lovely local Scots here who love chatting about the country. Obviously this isn't a live chat function but any time you add a discussion to the forum there will be plenty of people who will respond and engage with you. 

    Tell us more about your trip - what did you see and do and which parts of the country did you enjoy the most?

    @Redtail As Amanda mentioned, creating a discussion on a specific facet of life in Scotland is a great way to know a few specifics. Facebook groups are also a good way to connect with more locals (and see a good number of pictures as part of the process). The official VisitScotland FB group is already 6K strong and growing. Hit me up on Facebook if you want to know about more groups I am personally on.
