Magnificent Southern Scotland

The main towns in the region of Southern Scotland are Glasgow, Stirling and Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. Each of these cities are worth a visit in their own right. Because of its situation, Southern Scotland has seen the most battles between Scottish and English armies in Scotland. However, the wars have long since ceased and left Southern Scotland a place of peace and natural beauty.

There is much to see and do in Scotland – both natural and historical. For
example, you could visit the castles such as Castle Campbell, Floors Castle and Caerlaverock Castle. Or you could visit the River Tweed during fishing
season as the River is famous for its abundance of salmon. Other popular attractions in
the region are the various abbeys and ruins. You might try Jedburgh, Melrose,
Dryburgh and Glenluce Abbeys.

To the North there lies Loch Lomond. It is naturally rugged and beautiful
and is a great place to relax and unwind. To the South-West of the region,
you’ll find Dumfries and Galloway. Because this area is so close to the Gulf
Stream, it is much warmer than the rest of Scotland. This has resulted in
especially green and lush vegetation. There are some fabulous gardens worth
visiting in the area. In the East of Southern Scotland you’ll find St Andrews – a golfers dream.

If you are planning a trip to Southern Scotland, you’d better be planning a
long one. There is so much to see and do that you’ll find yourself enjoying
every second and wanting more. Between bustling cities, magnificent ruins and
beautiful wildlife reserves, there is no shortage of sights to appeal to all
tastes. You can be sure that a trip to Southern Scotland will be a memorable
