The Lowlands are not exclusively about Edinburgh and Glasgow. Indeed, the Lowlands stretches from Berwickshire and East Lothian across the Borders to Dumfries and Galloway.
This area of Scotland is blessed with an abundance of picture postcard towns and villages, rolling hills, castles, award-winning beaches and some of the world’s oldest, finest and most prestigious golf courses. With great stretches bordering England, the lowlands were also the scene of many a battle.
Known as ‘Scotland’s Garden’ thanks to its fertility is East Lothian which is home to the historic battle town of Dunbar, the sunniest place in Scotland, the ancient a market town of Haddington and picturesque North Berwick. Lobster boat trips by the volcanic Bass Rock, sampling the Queen’s favourite Gin at the NB Distillery or a visit to Glenkinchie and playing the famed golf courses of Muirfield, Gullane, Dunbar, North Berwick and Archerfield are just some of the things to do.
From there the Lowlands stretch across the historic Mill towns of the Borders, home to the world’s finest woollens and outstanding salmon fishing on the River Tweed, all the way to the west coast and it’s rugged beauty, it’s world class golf courses and the home of one of Scotland’s most famous sons, Rabbie Burns (Robert Burns), there is plenty to enjoy about Scotland’s Lowlands.
