Prepare to hear different accents

In Scotland and England, as well as areas between Scotland itself it might be difficult for visitors to understand people. When speaking to locals within the city, be aware of the strong accents that they may have. If you don’t understand them, don’t be afraid to ask again. However, you can never make fun of the way people are talking, even though you are not used to it.

Wear warm clothes

In Scotland, it tends to be colder, windier and wetter than England, so be WARNED! Moreover, make sure to always carry umbrella or raincoat with you, because locals usually agree that weather forecasts in the UK are never correct, thus be prepared.
