At the southern gateway to Scotland the seductive Borders region is a land of strong traditions and inspiring heritage sites, a consequence of its turbulent history.

Scotland

Scotland's landscape is dotted with dramatic fairy-tale castles, ruined abbeys, fascinating historic cities and picturesque villages. Edinburgh, its capital, is widely considered to be one of the most charming cities on Earth. To the west, Glasgow has grown into one of Europe's most exciting cities for culture and recreation. Inverness and Aberdeen give access to trekking across the hills of the lowlands or the rocky peaks of the Highlands and islands. But whether on the low or the high road, there's plenty to see and do in one of the world's most accessible and civilized wildernesses.
