Scotland East

Scotland EastThe Scotland East region covers the largest geographical area of any BAUS region, and serves a population of some 3 million people. It covers not just the eastern mainland of Scotland but also numerous island groups both north and west of the mainland, as well as a significant portion of the western Scottish mainland, north of the river Clyde. 


A journey through the region takes you from the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders through the capital city of Edinburgh (castle pictured), home to the Scottish Parliament over the Forth Road Bridge to the ancient Kingdom of Fife. To the north are the fertile plains of the River Tay where the joint centres of Dundee and Perth, once great for industry but now largely devoted to farming and tourism, form the onward gateway to the Scottish Highlands.

Up the east coast, past a string of small towns famous for the herring industry, lie the city of Aberdeen (the oil capital of the UK), the highland city of Inverness and, further on, the wild and remote communities of Caithness & Sutherland. Across the stormy waters of the Minch and the Pentland Firth lie the remote Western IslesOrkney & Shetlandwith their rich Viking-inspired history and small centres of population, winning a living from the sea and with much promise for the future as centres of renewable energy.
