    What do your "genetic groups" and your close matches look like? Those might tell you more.

    It depends, are you from the UK? English and Scandinavian DNA is indistinguishable.

    I disagree. Of course that it is distinguishable.

    It's broadly distinguishable (with some error margin) but MyHeritage isn't good at distinguishing it.

    23andme, AncestryDNA and FTDNA all worked out I was British.

    Myheritage is obsessed with giving people lots of Scandinavian. They definitely have an issue differentiating between Scandinavian and English. I received 30% on their test, and the highest Scandinavian % I've received on any other test is 3% on 23andme.

    The "macro" ethnicities are to be interpreted in a global way; they often overlap around the North Sea, certainly at their test. On a finer scale, it is better to look at the genetic groups they give you (groups of current day people that might share a genetic relationship; here too, don't interpret it in a literal way) and the origin of your close matches.

    Have you done 23andme? I think it's the most accurate commercial DNA test.
