This week we are running a number of stories looking at various aspects of the results that came out of the survey.

Today we are focusing on what Scottish people are most looking forward to post-lockdown, according to the results of the poll.

Those who took part in the survey were able to choose any number of the following options:

attending sports events eating out and going to pubs going to the barber/hairdresser going for beauty treatments going to the cinema/theatre/live music etc going for days out at leisure attractions going on holidays/trips going shopping playing sport/going to the gym/exercise classes other

67.5% of Scotsman readers said they were looking forward to ‘going on holidays/trips’, followed by ‘eating out and going to bars/pubs’ which 63% of readers opted for.

The third most popular option was ‘going to the barber/hairdresser’ which 54% of people said they were looking forward to.

The least popular option was ‘going for beauty/pampering treatments’.

Our survey also asked people to choose up to three areas of everyday life they were looking forward to from the following options:

enjoying the outdoors again going back to their place of work seeing family socialising with friends their children going back to school again

The most popular options with our respondents were: ‘seeing family’ with 71%; ‘socialising with friends’ with 59%, ‘enjoying the outdoors again’ with 43%, ‘going back to my place of work’ with 18.5% and ‘children being back in school’ with 13%.

Tomorrow The Scotsman will be revealing more results from our lockdown survey.
