Scotland - Southern Scotland (Chapter)
This is the Southern Scotland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Scotland guidebook.
Though wise folk are well aware of its charms, for many people southern Scotland is just something to drive through on the way to northern Scotland. Big mistake. But it does mean you’ll find breathing room here in summer.
- explore the noble, evocative ruins of the Border Abbeys – Dryburgh is our favourite – and the area’s several other excellent historic sights
- admire the 18th-century architectural genius of Culzean Castle perched on wild sea cliffs
- ponder the tough old life on the England–Scotland frontier at the desolate Hermitage Castle
- restaurants & accommodation
