Scottish Borders

The Scottish Borders covers a huge swathe of southern Scotland to the east of the M74. It's an unspoilt wilderness of green hills, rushing rivers and bleak, barren moors, and it has an austere beauty which would surprise those who think that the real Scotland starts somewhere north of Perth.
