The study from money.co.uk analysed data from ONS and uncovered the 12 worst-ranked locations in Scotland for work/life balance. But would you agree with the scoring which puts these places in the bottom 12 worst places to live in Scotland?
Eight different factors were considered in the rankings, and scored equally between the various categories. These included happiness, anxiety, life satisfaction, access to public and green spaces, earnings and hours worked, and unemployment levels.
1. East Ayrshire
A score of only 47.1 - ther emust be some mistake, just look at that scenery!
2. South Lanarkshire
It scored 45.5, but with some stunning beauty spots like Calderglen Park, how can this be?

Now, with a score of just 44.3 there really has to be something wrong here. How could you feel bad waking up to a sunrise like this?

4. West Lothian
With a score of only 43.2, you have to wonder if they really took West Lothian fully into consideration here.
