The Western Marches aren't as west as sometimes supposed. Caledonia lies to
the south of the western frontiers of the Western Marches. The Western
Marches are almost directly north of Eltrandor & Caledonia, west of the
Volklands of northern Drakenburg, and east of the wilderness and small
holdings on the coast next to Destiny. The Western Marches have no (known)
borders with Destinian provinces.
(Historical note - the Western Marches were named in the time of Sigismund,
when they were settled, though never fully included in the Kingdom. While
perhaps not the western most area of the Kingdom, calling them the Northern
Marches would not have pleased Alfhiem, and it nicely balanced the Eastern
Marches of Tuscana, etc. More details on the naming conventions of the time
should be directed to Mortimer)

South of the western marches is mostly Destinian. Southeast, and north of
Flugelheim and Artzdorf is Caledonia, more or less surrounded by mountain
ranges. East of Caledonia is Eltrador.
I have the map of Caledonia if you need it. Caledonia does not have any
portals known to the Guild.
