For a country small in size, Scotland more than compensates with its vast natural beauty, distinct culture and world-leading gastronomy. And if you’re looking for a Scottish dating site that helps you find the best of them, look no further.
The clichéd image of Scottish life might look rosy; enjoying the outdoors, dancing up a storm at ceilidhs and topping it all off with a dram or two of local whisky.

According to Emma Budgen, who runs the new Edinburgh base – the matchmaking agency’s only UK office outside of London – there is a healthy demand from Scottish high earners who simply don’t have the time, the right social network, or the desire to dodge the hen parties in George Street on a Saturday night in the search for prospective partners.
The same cannot be said about Scottish men, I'm afraid.
They are in the financial industry, the legal profession, and a lovely mix of entrepreneurs who are very busy running their own businesses and maintaining them.
And for them, forking out £10,000 – rising to £40,000 if they want to “headhunt” a husband or wife internationally – to join the elite agency in search of a date, is barely a drop in the financial ocean.“The people we have are the kind who do not miss £10,000 coming out of their bank account.
The amount of money doesn’t bother them,” says Emma, who works with A-list clients across Scotland and the north of England.“In Scotland alone we have three to four hundred people on our books and it’s steadily growing all the time.
We have a number of academics and land owners – a very broad mixture of people and a good balance of men and women.”In spite of the recent recession, Edinburgh’s reputation for above average earnings and its pool of well-heeled moneyed professionals persuaded the agency to expand into the city.
And further afield it seems there’s plenty of demand from rich lonely hearts – the agency’s global membership has grown by 25 per cent in the last six months, with 3000 members in the UK alone.
