The Scottish Borders unlocked
Great new app for exploring the Scottish Borders. Worth spending a bit of time getting the hang of it - there’s a lot going on - but this helps unlock the previously overlooked borderlands of southern Scotland and makes it a lot easier to plan a stay.
Tip: the tours are good but you need to click on the View Our Map button and then use the Filter button to get the most out of the app. That lets you search for accommodation, attractions, food and drink etc by location.
The creators of this App have really done their homework.
I live in the south of Scotland, so I had a look around the App to see what it told me about my local area.
I was very impressed.
Sure, it doesn’t include everything, but if I was a visitor coming to the area, it really would be worthwhile having.
I’m looking forward to using it in parts of the south which are less familiar to me.
Easy 5 stars. 🙂
