I'm Scottish but live in Turkey. I want to start a pension scheme but no one seems interested because I am living here?

I get 140 pounds from my ex husband every month and need to invest it for my future. He has paid it for almost 18 months so far and needs to pay for 15 years in total. How am I best to invest it? I used to have it paid into my ISA but since I changed my address the bank now pay it into a non interest account! I have paid into Asda Hourly Paid Pension scheme from 1997 approx to 2001. From 2001 to 2005 I paid into Asda Salaried Pension Scheme. Can I do anything with these? I also had something to do with Serps too through Prudential. I have no idea where to start looking for information. I spoke to a financial advisor before I moved here and he just said he couldn't help if I decided to live here! Will I still be entitled to a state pension? I have paid tax and NI since I was 16 until I was 39.5 yrs old. I'm currently not working but looking for work in Turkey at the moment. If you can't help where would you suggest I try?
