Why Scottish Borders?

There is a reason Scotland is known as the MOST Beautiful Country in the World. The wildness, raw beauty and mystery of the land has nourished creative souls for all of time.
The history of the past 3 millennia is still in full view. The culture and lifestyle is unchanged and the land holds a mystical beauty that one MUST see and touch.
The Scottish Borders is truly a Gateway to the rest of Scotland and bared the brunt of the wars that ensued between its closest neighbour.
Every hill has a story to tell from pre-history, Iron/bronze age to Medieval
The Scottish Borders is the only areas to be mostly occupied by the romans (on Scottish Soil) in Scotland.
Add all this together and the Scottish Borders has one hell of a story to tell!
