36 Reasons Absolutely Everyone Hates The Scottish Borders
Scottish Borders? More like Scottish bore-ders.
A handful of people like to claim that the Scottish Borders are pretty.
Yeah, right. Everyone knows the Borders are actually ugly as hell.
In fact, the whole region is a blighted, urban hellhole.
Full of rough, mean, unfriendly types.
You won't find any beautiful lochs in the Borders.
Or dramatic scenery: You only get that up north.
It's not "proper" Scotland, in other words.
There's absolutely sod-all to do in the Borders.
Nope, not a single thing.
There are no interesting, quirky traditions to explore...
...and absolutely no culture at all.
You can give up all hope of finding somewhere scenic to eat, too.
There's nowhere decent to go for a drink, either.
And you have to go all the way to Edinburgh to get classy food.
The Borders have never produced any creative or note-worthy people.
Which is unsurprising really; it's all so ugly and uninspiring.
Can you imagine actually having to live here? Urgh.
In fact, it's hard to say anything good about the towns at all.
Admit it: You'd rather live in a ditch.
You can put your phones away; there's nothing Instagram-worthy here.
The whole region has absolutely no sense of history.
So you'll be lucky to see a single well-preserved building.
And the few there are definitely don't look like something out of Game of Thrones.
Spring is a particularly dreary time of year.
They don't really get a summer either. It's so sad.
Autumn is bleak and miserable.
And winter is unspeakably gloomy and grim.
If you like the sea, you should steer clear of the Borders.
In fact, the coastal areas are the worst thing about the whole place.
It's embarrassing the way they go on about their beaches.
Seriously, who could be proud of this?
In short, you shouldn't touch the Borders with a barge pole.
It's an unspeakably ugly and lifeless place.
A miserable dump with nothing worth recommending.
It's a genuine pity that anyone actually has to live there.
In fact, it's hardly surprising that everyone hates it.
