I’ve lived in Scotland, UK, for most of my life and have hosted several American friends during their travels, taking note of their most common mistakes.
I was born in Scotland, a small country in the United Kingdom with about 5.4 million residents, according to the National Records of Scotland.
I currently live in Glasgow, the country’s largest city, and I also spent short periods living in the US and London. During my travels, I’ve made friends with people from all over the world, particularly those from the US.
Scotland is beloved by many Americans, and according to data collected from the tourist organization Visit Scotland, more Americans visited Scotland than any other nationality in 2017, with 566,000 visits.
Over the past few years, I’ve offered myself as a tour guide for many of my American friends, and now I’ll share with you the most common mistakes they made.
