As Scots, we are proud of our nation’s important history. A journey through the South of Scotland is like opening the pages of a beautiful reference work on Scottish History.

While you are here you can enjoy, castles, country houses, monuments, locations linked to myth and legend and museums exhibiting items from our agricultural and industrial heritage.

This is the land of Burn’s Poetry, The Border Rievers, The Covenanters, William Wallace’s Army and Robert the Bruce himself!
