Scotland County is a special and inviting place that includes historic properties, eclectic shopping options, quality hotels, varied restaurants, and acres upon acres of natural beauty. Come experience for yourself our distinct Scottish charm and Southern hospitality.
Our communities are located in what is known as the Sandhills Region of North Carolina, which places us in the center of it all. We are 100 miles from the metro regions of Charlotte and Raleigh, NC; we are 100 miles from the beaches of North and South Carolina; and we are only one hour's drive from Fayettevile, NC and Florence, SC.
For recreation, one simply has to navigate 40 miles south of the Pinehurst/Southern Pines area to discover historic Southern hospitality. Visit the John Blue House, The Indian Museum, The Scottish Heritage Museum or simply enjoy the natural beauty of the Lumber River State Park .
Our region is made up of a diversified economic base; everything from agriculture to manufacturing, from small business to Fortune 500. The region is home to several higher education institutions; Richmond Community College, St. Andrews Presbyterian College, and University of North Carolina-Pembroke; and what we feel is the best healthcare system in the Southeast, Scotland Healthcare.
