Scottish people in Poland

Okay, I work for a Scottish newspaper and have been asked to find out if there are many Scots in Poland. Everybody knows about Poles moving to the UK post-2004, but I'm led to believe the movement has slowed a bit and that a lot of Poles are going back to Poland, in some cases taking British partners with them.

We're interested in this from a Scottish perspective: are you Scottish or do you know anyone who has moved from Scotland to Poland in recent years, either for employment/business reasons or for love? Would be great to hear from you.

Kenny contacted me after he'd (already) contacted the Sikorski club in Glasgow, I sent him here.

He's specifically interested in Scots who have moved to Poland since EU membership of Poland.

You can give me a shout - I moved here from Scotland and I've got my own business here :)

I've moved here for 3 months from Edinburgh 9 years ago now :)

You'll find a few more Scots on the FB Polska TA page [facebook.com/#!/group.php?gid=108947232459649] - here.

what happened to our buddy Seanus?

I was wondering too, probably burn out, looks like the baton has been passed to delphiandomine....

He likes his vanishing acts, no doubt he'll be back soon.

Hey, thanks to everyone who has replied. Trevek is right - I'm looking for people who've moved more latterly, certainly post-2004 but ideally even more recently, post-credit crunch even.

delphiandomine, I'll be in touch.

I moved out for the first time during the credit crunch and then again after the credit crunch for much longer. Is that going to be relevant to the article? As I said, direct any questions my way if you like.

Cardno85 - ideally I'm looking for people who are still out in Poland but let me get back to you.

Saenus left, osiol left there must be something toxic to personality when you think real world is inside forums

I am here after long long time, just for fun. Its very interesting to see the same nicknames still on the PF basment with no real life :)

If I am correct, my great grandmother's mother was Scottish. I'm 100000% Polish so that doesn't really matter, maybe when I visit Edinburgh, there might be a huge 'WELCOME HOME'.
