The southeastern region of Scotland, formed in 1975 from the counties of Berwickshire, Roxburghshire, Peebleshire and Selkirkshire plus the southern part of the county of Midlothian.   It was the 6th in size but the smallest in population of the nine mainland regions of Scotland.

As SCOTTISH BORDERS, it became one of the unitary authorities in Scotland in 1996, when the four district councils within it – Tweeddale, Ettrick & Lauderdale, Berwickshire, and Roxburgh – were abolished.
