These posts are never a good idea, they tend to turn up emotions and become a pee pee contest.
I personally think that you should narrow it down to what states you would like to love to and research that way. There is already info on each designated state section too. There are many pros and cons to evaluate not just pay, COL and benefits.
For example, as crazy as this may sound, my job pay and benefits are and probably will never be what the OP has or like what Scotland has. Still, I chose this area due to no weather disasters, low taxes, decent COL, excellent school system for my little ones, low crime rate, finally being able to own a home with our modest income and it’s in a great neighborhood and newer construction.
To add to the post, insurance is about $700 a month for my spouse and kids included and a normal 80/20 PPO plan with a moderate deductible. PTO and sick bank are all lumped into one. Earn about 12 hours a month, no paid holidays, no weekend diff, a laughable night shift diff, no pension plan, 401k employee contributions gone, and average salary of $65k a year for a nurse with 5+ years experience. Oh, and no, there isn’t any pay difference if you have an ADN or DNP. Never have and I suspect they never will. I have never experienced a pay diff anywhere in the last few states we have moved to and worked in (military).
This is the norm in my metropolitan city and the grass is not greener even across nearby state lines.
