Scotland County

Scotland is one of 100 North Carolina counties. We are in last place in virtually every category. We have the highest unemployment rate, the lowest per capita income, lowest educational achievement, highest crime rate and second worst health rating. It’s not a pretty picture.

The good news is, this unenviable record can be reversed. The key rests right in our own pocket, but we must be willing to reach in, grab it, insert it into the lock and turn it. No one can or will do this for us.

Our future is within us!
