Since I upgraded my broadband some IP locators have moved me to Scotland.....

And me to either Cardiff or Poland. Plus I have checked in over the past 6 months from 8 foreign countries. Does this skew things?

As IP addressed get reassigned, copy databases become less reliable if you're getting location from a site like GeoIP as we do for some stuff behind the scenes.  However, Google Analytics probably uses its own system and keeps it very much current, and I would suspect that averaged out the geographic mapping of visitors is somewhere between "quite good" and "very good".  I wouldn't trust individual splodges on the map, but I would accept the general pattern.

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.
