What type of veterinarian experience is it you have.

Is it domestic animals such as cats and dogs or do you have agricultural experience such as sheep cows etc, or equine?

There are usually opportunities within the agricultural, if I was you I would time my arrival just before the lambing season etc, to maximise your possibilities

Us Scots are very friendly, Scotland is what you make it - be friendly and outgoing and she will return that warmth, be arrogant and uptooth, and she will bring you down to earth on yer head with a bump

We are talking about the "Wild Black Haggis"- I can assure you is not easy caught, and there have been a variety of methods used to catch this elusive, cunning, bird.

They have well known to team up with "The Famous Grouse" - trust me, when they team up then blood flies

Hope this helps
OH - your retirement home Ceres, North East Fife, flat, 15 minuets you have the hills, plenty of good fishing both river and sea, salmon, sea trout, brown trout, Haddock, etc, Edinburgh airport 50 minuets, and 3 hospitals within 10 - 30 minuets
The people friendly
Or why not build your own house, I will sell you a plot if you like.
Haahaahaa! Farm raised haggis! LOL. Maybe I'll raise them in my old age!

Do you suppose you can sell me a plot in St. A, overlooking the North Sea, in the middle of some nice flat grassy pasture? I've seen the one I want there, only it was crowded with people wearing funny hats and shoes, smacking a poor defenseless ball with a stick. We'll have to fence the ball smackers out . . .

I know a game keeper who will help you out with the "Wild black Haggis" you will have to collect at midnight and do not wear any red clothes.

The plot I have is stunning, area great landscape value, top of a hill with panoramic views as far as the eye can see, Oh everything is green, The river Eden 1 mile away, St Andrews 4 miles away, and nobody wacking any balls in sight.

I will send you a pm with a link

a good way to attract them is to sit still and quietly hum their mating call.

its similar to that of a rockall puffin.....but backwards and slower

ive found it works a treat in the right weather conditions and hey...everybody loves free food

Don't you just have to alter the song a bit to attract the vegetarian option? I thought I read that on a tin in a store once!

No, you guys are getting confused with the red grouse, altering the pitch whilst squatting and singing will attract the vegetarian red grouse.
Hope this helps
