As an English person, I wouldn't be moving to Scotland to face a difficult future - I'd stay in England, somewhere. Not that its about the Scots - but "outsiders" are always the first scapegoats, in every society
Although I mostly agree with your comment, and you're not wrong, I think if you get to know and help your neighbours (which anyone from a rural area knows, is normal anyway), if you respect the people and the culture, throw the odd party and invite them all (to try your amazing home-brewed scumpy or ale, hopefully), and you add to the community, then you'll be accepted in time.
Don't integrate, stay in hiding, drive around in a brand new 4x4, then put up a huge fence around your property and spend all your money at the local shops buying up all the wholefoods and toilet paper, then yeah, you're probably in for some (rightful) flack.
The likelihood of persecution definitely goes up though, the greater the cultural differences between those parties involved.
Scotland, not so much, but maybe I'm just biased. I'd be considered English from my accent, but my paternal ancestry is Scots and my mother's Irish, just a few generations ago.
