Venturing into the wilderness isn’t merely a slogan in the South of Scotland—it’s ingrained in our very essence. Just beyond our thresholds lie ancient woodlands, glittering lochs, roaring rivers, and rising hills, and we cherish every inch of our natural surroundings. Here, nature isn’t a distant spectacle; it’s an immersive experience waiting to be embraced. Step into our UNESCO Biosphere exploring its fields, forests and coast. Head to our forest parks and climb our hills and witness firsthand our spectacular outdoor spaces. Explore our rivers by canoe, our lakes on a paddleboard and our coasts on sailboats large and small. However you choose to adventure we have an outdoor pursuit calling to you here in the South of Scotland where Adventures Start!
