I'm no expert, but I think your expectation of £80k/year is a little
high. The highest rate I've seen quoted for full-time, salaried Perl
positions in London is £70k + bonus. To be honest, my guess is that
there are very few developer jobs advertised in Scotland for which the
successful candidate gets a salary in the £80k+ range.
I completely agree with you on job adverts that don't include an
indication of expected salary, though. I can kind of see why some
companies do that, but it definitely makes life harder for applicants.
