Carlisle es la capital del condado de Cumbria (Escocia). Tiene 102.998 habitantes (datos de 2001), y constituye un importante centro turístico e industrial del noroeste del país. Su posición de nodo de comunicaciones ferroviarias le da una importancia estratégica adicional, al albergar rutas a Newcastle, Escocia, Londres o West Cumbria.

Historicamente Carlisle, capital del condado de Cumberland, tuvo importancia como fortaleza militar debido a su posición en la frontera entre Inglaterra y Escocia; El castillo de Carlisle, actualmente intacto, fue construido en 1092 por el rey Guillermo II y en su momento sirvió como prisión para María Estuardo, reina de Escocia.
