South & Central Scotland

From the traditional holiday playground of the Clyde coast and the Isle of Arran, east into the uplands of Ayrshire and the upper reaches of the Clyde, this area has a fascinating industrial heritage and an emphasis on golf and leisure. Instead of dashing ever-northwards, taking a left (from the south) reveals a very rewarding area - characterful and colourful towns, hills, forests and very attractive landscapes - in places surprisingly rugged. Dumfries & Galloway is full of surprises. Edinburgh makes a great first impression – then gets better. Its spectacular skyline of castle and crag, classical columns and spires is the backdrop to a cultural programme that lasts all year. Edinburgh is simply one of Europe’s great capitals. Upfront and affable, Glasgow has impressive credentials for visitors eager for a Scottish city experience - superb shopping is just one of them. Culture, nightlife, attractions galore all add to the choice. From sea cliffs and sandy beaches, backed by famous golf courses, to the rounded hills and stately homes of the Southern Uplands, the Lothians and Borders has much to offer.
