Outer Hebrides ‘happiest’ place to live in UK
The Outer Hebrides is officially the happiest place to live in the United Kingdom.
That is the verdict of a Government wellbeing survey which questioned people’s levels of happiness around the UK.
The Western Isles is the place where people gave the highest score to the question, ‘how happy were you yesterday?’.
Respondents rated their average happiness as 8.2 out of 10 in 2015/16, up from 8.1 in 2014/15, meaning the area overtakes Fermanagh and Omagh in Northern Ireland, which was the happiest place in 2013/14 and 2014/15, as the happiest place in the UK.
