Holidays in the beautiful and easily accessible South

The fact that Southern Scotland is so accessible and can be reached without many hours of costly driving is just one reason why it should be worthy of consideration as a holiday destination. It is a pity therefore that many visitors hurry past on their way to the better known Highlands or the West Coast. Those who do decide to linger awhile and explore further, however, are very often so entranced by this historic, beautiful and accessible region that they return again and again.

Far more important are such factors as its beautiful landscape of green hills and peaceful valleys, woods and forests, pretty towns and a wonderful historic legacy in the form of castles, stately homes, ruined abbeys, peel towers and the like.
