Renowned for our humour, warmth, good nature, and fun-loving spirit, we Scots are a desirable (and humble) bunch.
As a great, great Scot Andrew Carnegie once said “there is little success where there is little laughter” and you’ll find an abundance of the stuff if you’re lucky enough to date a Scottish person.
Mr Carnegie also knew a bit about business, and he knew better than most that scarcity drives up value. Seeing as we’re only a wee nation, there’s fewer of us to go around. So grab one while you still can because, long story short, we’re pure dead brilliant.
With that in mind, here are 7 of the best reasons why you need to date a Scot!
1. We Have a Great Sense of Humour
As the home of Billy Connolly, Frankie Boyle, and Kevin Bridges to name but a few, it’s hardly surprising that the Scots love to crack a few jokes. Laughter is our default setting, and we’re not afraid to laugh at ourselves either!

2. We Know How to Party
There’s a reason Hogmanay is a big deal. With one of the biggest street parties in the world, nobody rings in the New Year like us. And with a Scot by your side you’re guaranteed to raise a dram and dance the night away as the fireworks light up the sky.
3. We’re Passionate Beyond Measure
According to an online survey, the English may have us beaten in the good looks stakes (though that’s definitely up for debate) but we’re the better lovers, and more romantic too. And when you do get a wee winch it’ll be the best feeling since Archie Gemmill scored against Holland in 1978.
4. Sore Heid? We’ve Got You Covered
If you’ve over-indulged the night before, then waking up next to a Scot the morning after means you’re in very safe hands. Hands that will be adept at rustling up a full cooked breakfast and sourcing a can of Irn-Bru, as if from nowhere, to help you banish that hangover to the depths of hell where it belongs.

5. We’re Generous to a Fault
It might be a bit of a stereotype (perpetuated by a cartoon duck, no less) that we’re all tight-fisted, but that’s just plainly not true. In fact we donate more to charity per head of the population than most other parts of the UK!

6. We’re a Wee Bit Cheeky
You better be ready for some banter when you’re dating a Scot. When we’re not sticking traffic cones on top of our statues, then our tongues are almost always firmly in our cheeks as we refuse to take ourselves too seriously. And with our propensity to use indecipherable slang, you’ll need a Scot by your side to translate. Dae ye ken?
7. We’re Always Ready for Adventure
Of course we are. We deep fry everything. There’s a certain level of courage involved in that alone. And when you consider that we call the UK’s capital of extreme sports home, you’re bound to get a much needed shot of adrenaline in the company of an adventurous Scot.
