Central belt boundaries

Recommended Posts

Everything south of Dalwhinnie is in the central belt.

I'd say...

It needs a boundary just south of places like Irvine, Kilmarnock, Darvel, etc.

Dumbarton sneaks in, places like Helensburgh and Balloch don't. Largely agree with the northern boundary on the map otherwise.

In the east I'd say the boundary is closer to Edinburgh - just to the east of Presonpans and Tranent.

Basically as someone else wrote - if it's somewhere that people from Glasgow/Edinburgh go for holidays, then it's not in the central belt.

For me, the northern boundary of the central belt is between Stirling and Perth. Say, halfway up the A9. 

Ayr 😂

If you draw a line from Stirling to Glenrothes,  everything below that is where the stupid accents start so there.

Pretty much the insert in this picture if ye remove the wee bits of the Borders and Argyll that stick in and almost all of Stirling

This.

North of this = Teuchters
South of this = Tories
Greenock = Greenock

'The Highland/Lowland whisky boundary' is the correct answer. Anyone who thinks Fife should be excluded should have their Drivers Licence confiscated due to failing to acknowledge the existence of a series of obvious & convenient set of bridges.

Wikipedia includes Tayside. 

Not my opinion, just saying

Wikipedia also says that Almondvale has a red blaes pitch, so I think we can file that nonsense in the bin.

North East - Dundee

South East - Edinburgh

North West - Greenock

South West - Ayr

Draw a box with corners at these four places and draw little squiggles to include any large towns near the edges (like Perth).

I like how the OP includes Ayr in the Central Belt due to the 45 minute bus ride to Glasgow City Centre (how fast is this bus travelling btw?), but excludes the much closer city of Stirling.

Ayr/Prestwick and Killie are definitely part of the central belt.

Fife is absolutely fucking not.

 

I always thought Fife was, but if it means we can race down the Covid restriction levels so be it.
