My ex partner is moving to Scotland do I have any rights as she is taking my daughter away from me?
How old is the child and when is she seeking to go? Do you spend much time with the child?

I have her every Wednesday and every other Thursday for tea I used to have her sleep twice a week as well but she developed a phobia of sleeping so not to effect her school life we felt it best to not force her. My daughter is 8. Her mum announced to me last night that she will be moving within the next 5 weeks. I also have two boys with my current partner 7 months and 3 who my daughter already struggles with not seeing very much.

I see. Then you can if you want to apply to the court for a child arrangement order and a prohibited steps order to prevent her from removing the child to Scotland. This would prevent her moving until the court have determined the issue and I would be minded to make the application immediately. I have attached a link to a very good book which would assist - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Represent-Yourself-Family-Court-understanding/dp/147211910X

The form which you need to use is a c100
