Welcome to Southern Scotland

My team works with many partners to ensure that residents and visitors can experience and appreciate the remarkable variety of wildlife and scenery across the south of Scotland. The extensive network of paths and cycle trails give access to iconic Scottish wildlife like osprey, red squirrel, red deer, mountain hare and otter. Whether it's for the spectacular cliffs at Mull of Galloway or St Abbs Head, the rugged granite uplands in Galloway or rounded hills purple with heather further east, the impressive tidal estuaries at Caerlaverock and Wigtown with their huge flocks of birds, or the world renowned Tweed and its tributaries, anytime is worth a visit.
