    Default Classify these Scottish councillors who wouldn't pass in southern England

    While Scotland is basically part of the UK there is still a distinctive difference between many Scots and the English, especially the southern English

    Wider faces, smaller eyes, slightly paler, these seem to have more sqaure shaped heads while south English have rounder or more oval shaped faces.

    Oh. I've never been to the British Isles. I'm a blend of a few ethnicities including all four countries/areas that make up the United Kingdom. From photos I've seen, there is a wide variety of looks all over the U.K. People from the same town can look very different from each other.

    Logging out now....the Stanley Cup is on tv.

    As a whole, I'd say Subnordid, Strandid, Atlantid, Alpine and maybe some Brnn.

    I actually can't decide whether it is the face shape or pigmentation aspect that is how Scots are most easily distinguishable from the English (although the English are pretty fair-skinned on average as well). Literally like 80% of Scots are pale AF (when taking into account both my observations on my recent trip to Scotland and seeing pics of the fans that have swarmed Munich), but it must be emphasised how common brown eyes are. The majority of Scots I met on my April excursion had brown eyes and yet Scotland is somehow the 'blue-eyed' capital of Europe (alongwith Ireland). I call BS, that award must go to Finland. I wouldn't say many of these councillors struggle to pass in England.

    It's more the face shape I would say but paleness does play a part as well, many of the southern English don't look that different to the Belgians who are not especially pale, I remember from my trips to Belgium about how many passed as Londoners.

    Scots are not significantly lighter eyed than the White British average. Gray and Tocher found 45% blue/grey eyes in Scottish schoolchildren. Not just among Baltic Finns but among Northern Europeans in general blue/grey eyes as a rule represent the clear majority. The frequency of the highly penetrant blue eye HERC2 variant at rs12913832 in the Dutch population may be more similar to Scandinavians and Baltic Finns than White British based on Genome of the Netherlands Release 5. The British including Scottish definitely appear to be both dark haired and dark eyed for their latitude in Europe.
