Scottish Connections around the World
In here you will find lots of information on Scottish connections in various countries around the world.  Each country page we send you to in here gives an overview of that country by providing a series of links to outside sources.  That said, on each page you will find at the top a link to "History on Electric Scotland" and that will send you to all the Scottish information we carry about that country.

It is probably worth mentioning that it is estimated that some 800,000 Scots of the present generation are thought to have emigrated to England, Wales and Ireland. Figures to our knowledge are not available to tell of the considerable number of Scots who emigrated, worked and died in England but we believe it is a considerable number.
