Edinburgh and Glasgow in top ten happiest places in Britain

The numbers are in , the polls are closed and now we can exclusively reveal that both Edinburgh and Glasgow are in top ten happiest places in Britain.
Here are the numbers for the happiest places to live and work in the UK

Brighton – 86.4%

Swansea – 75%

Glasgow – 70.6%

York – 66.7%

Lincoln – 63.2%

Belfast – 62.5%

Edinburgh – 62.5%

Birmingham – 61.3%

London – 61%

Manchester – 60%

Commenting on the findings, Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library, says: “At a time where there’s constant negativity in the press, it’s fantastic to see that the majority of Brits still feel happy on a daily basis.

“The findings got me thinking about an article I read once which really resonated with me: it said that success isn’t the key to happiness, it’s happiness that’s the key to success. I agree that feeling good in ourselves makes it easier to achieve our goals, whether that’s in our personal or professional lives.”

On the other hand, the cities where the percentage of respondents who said they were happy was below the national average, included Sheffield (57.7%), Bournemouth (57.1%), Oxford (55.6%), Bristol (55.6%), Newcastle (53.5%), Southampton (51.4%), Cambridge (47.5%), Liverpool (47.1%), Cardiff (44.8%), Bristol (44.4%) and Nottingham (40%).

Biggins concludes: “No-one can be happy all the time, but being able to make the most of the good times and cope effectively when life does get tough is crucial. If you are struggling, it’s important to not only seek professional help or talk to your loved ones, but also to really consider what’s making you unhappy. Make a list and try to think of solutions: maybe it’s time to find a new job, start a new hobby, or even take some time out to think about your goals.”

Edinburgh is a great city with lots to do for people who live there and visitors . Jamie Fraser’s ancestral home , Lallybroch , is not far from Edinburgh and can be visited on the Jamie Fraser Outlander tours.

Outlander star Sam Heughan spotted on a night out in Glasgow

Sam Heughan is busy filming for Season 4 of Outlander, but he still managed to sneak away for a little alone time with girlfriend Mackenzie Mauzy. On the heels of Caitriona Balfe’s exciting engagement news, the Outlander star was spotted enjoying a night on the town in Glasgow, Scotland.

Heughan Steps Out With Girlfriend
According to International Business Times, Heughan and Mackenzie were spotted at a concert in Glasgow over the weekend. The two have been dating since 2015 and were seen at the Grit Orchestra Bothy Culture and Beyond concert.

Heughan and Mackenzie typically keep their romance under wraps and seeing them in public is a rare thing. But it does confirm that Heughan is still dating Mackenzie, despite fans wishing that he and Balfe somehow get together in real life.

Balfe Shows Off Stunning Ring
Balfe’s surprise engagement was confirmed during her recent appearance at the Golden Globes. The Outlander star dazzled fans on the red carpet and showed off her massive engagement ring under the bright lights. Balfe later confirmed the engagement and admitted that she couldn’t be happier. The actress has been in a relationship with Tony McGill for the past two years.

Like Heughan, Balfe likes to keep her romance private and has only been photographed with McGill on a handful of occasions. They were previously spotted together at the Oscar Wilde Awards last year and at the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony for Jodie Foster in 2016.

Heughan And Balfe Party During Golden Globes
Heughan and Balfe aren’t romantically involved in real life, but they still know how to party together. Ahead of the Golden Globes earlier this month, the Outlander stars met at a pre-party in Los Angeles at the prestigious Chateau Marmont.

Heughan donned a blue suit for the event while Balfe stunned the crowd in a Dior velvet dress and matching earrings. Balfe was up for an award for best actress in a TV series and couldn’t be happier about the nomination. She also took a moment to talk about the Time’s Up movement, showing her support for other actresses in Hollywood.

“I think it’s a really great moment of solidarity for women, so it’ll be nice for all of us to join together and to make a really positive statement and a positive moment for change,” Balfe shared. “And I still think it’s a celebratory moment, but it’s, you know, we’re changing things, so I think that’s great.”

When Can We Expect The Wedding?
Balfe has not revealed any more details about her engagement and we still don’t have an official wedding date. Heughan rarely talks about his romantic life, so it’s difficult to tell if he and Mackenzie are also ready to take things to the next level.

Both Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe are currently busy filming the new season of Outlander, so it’s safe to safe that a wedding won’t be happening anytime soon.
