A new £2 million marketing campaign is being launched to draw more English visitors to the Scottish Borders.
The Closer Than You Think campaign is being run by VisitScotland, and it's part of their wider Brilliant Moments scheme.
The organisation says English tourists are valuable to the economy in the Borders, and that in 2013:
Many people south of the border may still think that getting to Scotland is a real mission in terms of distance and transport, but with exceptional new and direct rail and air connections it can actually be quicker to get to Glasgow for example than to make the daily journey to work for some commuters.
Highlighting that makes people realise that the fantastic range of things to see and do which regions like The Scottish Borders offer is actually very much within their reach.
We want to encourage the rest of the UK to come and visit their neighbours in Scotland and discover not only how easy it is to get here, but also how deliciously brilliant it is once they’ve arrived, with world-class attractions, landscapes, heritage, food and drink and culture."
