More about South Scotland

Close to the English border it may be but the area produced Sir Walter Scott and Rabbie Burns is fiercely patriotic and surprisingly Scottish.

A wonderfully diverse area combining the Scottish Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, Ayrshire and the Isle of Arran, this region offers everything from high mountains to rolling moorland; rich farmland to rolling coastlines; historic towns and villages to castles and abbeys.

The area is dominated by the Southern Uplands, a range of open, rolling, heather-clad hills running for some 120 miles from coast to coast. Over the centuries, rivers have carved deep valleys through these hills and within them can be found the medieval border towns of Melrose, Jedburgh, Kelso and Dryburgh, each with its own ruined abbey.

Further west lie the wild and beautiful hills and moors of Dumfries and Galloway. Here you'll find Britain's first "Dark Sky Park" in the Galloway Forest, where on a clear night over 7,000 stars can be seen.

To the south lies the Solway Firth, an area of out-standing natural beauty and home to the Caerlaverock National Nature Reserve and a long distance walking route, the 53 mile Annandale Way. To the north, the rolling farmland of Ayrshire, where Scotland's Bard was born and where numerous Burns sites can be visited and appreciated.

Finally, just offshore in the Firth of Clyde between Ayrshire and Kintyre sits the stunning Isle of Arran. With its magnificent mountain scenery and picturesque coastline, it rejoices in the description, "Scotland In Miniature". Perhaps the nicest surprise of all in an area filled with surprises.
