To the north we have historic cities Stirling, Perth and Dundee, and further afield the breath taking Scottish Highlands. To the south, there’s the beautiful Scottish Borders. Go west for Glasgow, Scotland’s largest city, and east for the gorgeous beaches of East Lothian. But whichever way you choose, you’re sure to find an adventure.
