Selkirk

The Royal Burgh of Selkirk is one of the most historically important towns in the Scottish Borders. It is one of the oldest Scottish border settlements and has played host to many of Scotland''s most famous historical figures. It’s also a great place for a cottage holiday in the Scottish Borders.

This area of Scotland is renowned for its beauty and there are literally hundreds of miles of walking paths, hillside treks and biking routes that criss-cross the rolling countryside. The river Tweed has excellent fishing spots and you are never too far away from a fantastic golf course.

The town has a rich history, telling its story through the buildings, artwork, statues and monuments. King David I, William Wallace and Sir Walter Scott all have had key roles in the history of the town, with Wallace being appointed Guardian of Scotland in the nearby forest and Sir Walter Scott having served as Sheriff for nearly 30 years in the 1800s. For those wishing to explore Scotland''s past, Selkirk is a brilliant starting point.

The town has an excellent museum that recreates the building''s origins as an 1800s shop and there is also a theatre that stages music concerts and drama performances. The market square is full of historical statues and quaint shops and when you need a break from your exploration, you will never have to search far for somewhere to get some great local food or to warm yourself by a pub fireplace at night.
