Scotsman,
I DON’T live in Scotland…but I got a steel shed a few years back, mostly for yard stuff.
I decided to put some wood in it to dry a couple years ago.
As the shed has no ventilation, i.e. no place for the moisture to go, I got a couple of louvered crawlspace vents and put those in, one on each side of the shed.

As for paint, I’ve had great success using elastomeric paint, similar to that sold for repainting mobile homes, as a good roof paint on metal. It is flexible and can expand and contract with the metal.

p.s.
Been to Scotland a few times while in the Navy.
Really enjoyed it.
