The site for all Scots, Scots descendants and Scotophiles, right across the world     

A light-hearted e-magazine with facts, figures, folklore, photographs; with lots of wee bits  of general info about Scotland - and some big bits. A site for folk to read, browse and, if you like - contribute to.

Around Scotland -                ~the Scottish Regions tell us about themselves~

The current Scottish Regions 

 Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me! This  is The Section where the various and varied Scottish regions tell you why a trip to Scotland is not complete without a visit to see their beautiful area...

       ...Scotland is a country of widely differing landscapes - from cosmopolitan cities to breathtaking coastal and mountain views, from lakelands (Lochs) to flat, rolling pastures. Steeped in history, there are very few places you will visit that do not have a tale to tell and a ruined (or perfectly preserved, in many cases) building or artefact to confirm what transpired at this place. Palaces, Castles, Battlefields, Abbeys and Churches…Scotland is overflowing with these…and much, much more. 

Bridge over the Silvery Tay - though not that of McGonagall; this one leads into (and away from) Dunkeld.

Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me! Every region of Scotland has something to offer the visitor - and they are so happy to see visitors that we have no doubt you will find the welcome warm and generous - wherever you go in this green land....

  ...A trip toGlasgow, once a heavily industrialised city, will surprise you with its vast areas of parkland and countryside - cosmopolitan shopping and eating/drinking, combined with the famous ‘Glesga’ warmth and wit. Edinburgh, a beautiful city by the coast - the Castle dominating the city and so many wonderful things to see and do. I could go on an on (no! I hear you plead) about the other major cities and regions of Scotland, but I hope you get the picture.

Jist a wee thrissle I maun be, but diina' ye daur sit on me! Now,  let the Regions, and the Districts, tell you themselves why you really should visit them. Take a look at their pages; perhaps use the link to their own websites, where much more information will be readily available...

 ...Maybe there's something you never knew about,waiting for you...

The Regions -their names, and where they are...


1) Strathclyde ; 2) Dumfries & Galloway; 3) Borders ; 4) Lothian ; 5) Central ; 6) Fife ; 7) Tayside ; 8) Grampian ; 9) Highland; 10) Western Isles. Orkney ; Shetland. (the latter two are not on this map, but we all know where they are; if not, they are on the map at the top of this page)

The Western Isles, Orkney, and Shetland, are designated as "Island Areas" rather than "regions" (don't ask me, ask them).
