Those who are returning to Scotland after a career furth of Scotia might want to explore trhe Scottish Government's scheme for first time home buyers. SHARED EQUITY - not the same as shared ownership. bascically you buy part of the equity of an eligible house and the governement holds the other part.

I can tell you more if you pm me. There is no kicback for me - I merely want to help emigres ! Best would be to send me an e-mail address.

scot47,

You seem to be having a problem with the keyboard!

This is the Low-cost initiative for first time buyers (LIFT)

Aye well that's true for us all. But from your posts you are half way there with no cigarettes or booze. So plenty of fresh veg and a brisk constitutional walk every day should prove to be a good restorative. As for youthful vigour well the internet abounds with come ons for cialis and viagra. However, an acquaintence I know suggests that you stay well clear of that Indian generic rubbish that is produced 'on the cheap' better not to scrimp in that department I can tell you.

So there you have it Mr Braveheart, the surefire way to liven up your Derby and Joan evenings.

For those looking to retirement in Scotland I would suggest looking at SHARED EQUITY as one way iof getting a house. That way you can get place for as little as 38,000 pounds. Or take my route and rent a place !

Have a look at this

PM me for info

My only regret about my retirement is that I should have done it earlier. There is (or CAN BE) life after KSA !

Hi Scot. Would have loved to join you for tea were it not for the matter of some 5,000 or so miles. Looks an excellent spot for retirement. Must say I was surprised, on looking at how to get to the hotel, to realise my fairly considerable meanderings north of the border haven't taken me there previously. I am beginning to consider 'eventual' retirement in the UK and that shared equity scheme looks interesting, though it may well have expired before I arrive back on those shores on a permanent basis. Still, would be grateful for any links, info and so forth. P.

Scotland is indeed sui generis, quite different from the land south of Tweed and Solway !

I await with interest more inquiries from those interested in retiring to a Scottish island !

The Isle of Bute is not a bad place to be. I do not think I could handle the place as a 20-year-old, but as a tired old ex-traveller and ex-EFL-bum it is a good place for me in my dotage.
