Based in Scotland

Is it right to write “Scottish-based” as you did in the April issue, page 10? I think you should write Scotland-based, instead. Antonio

Technically, you are right: “Scotland-based” is correct, but in this case “Scottish-based” is more natural. Here it is simply a case of what “feels right,” rather than grammatical correctness. At the same time, you could also say “based in Scotland.”
