Hello from Scotland!

Hi,

I'm Ian and I'm currently living in Glasgow (I'm from Inverness). After spending the summer in Washington DC I'm moving to Zurich to do a post-doc at ETH-Zurich.
As like everyone else I will be looking for a place to stay and trying to find out important thinks to make the transition as easy as possible. Any advice would be most welcome
Are there many Scots over there??
