Soaked in a history of often gruesome land disputes, the Scottish Borders once had a reputation for banditry and lawlessness. Today, the region is best known for its stunning landscapes, summer festivals, and friendly locals. Tourists often overlook this area on their way to Edinburgh or farther north. The region features a multitude of historic sites, including old castles and abbeys, many of which were built during the worst years of the territorial wars by kings keen on developing their lands. When you visit, you may notice that most locals speak dialects incomprehensible to non-natives, but you are unlikely to have communication problems, as they also gladly speak in plain English.
