Make Time For Selkirk

Selkirk’s centuries of proud traditions, whether its annual Common Riding, its links to historical figures such as William Wallace and Sir Walter Scott, or its many sporting achievements, make it a town of note. But it also has much to offer the modern shopper or traveller, if they time to take a look, with its traditional services on the historic High Street.

Selkirk’s position as a bustling hill town at the crossroads of the Borders means that it is always a convenient place to stop, whether born in the Borders, or a first-time visitor. Its unique position on the main North-South route, but also at the gateway to the Ettrick and Yarrow valleys, makes it a vital connection point.
