Selkirk is a historic town in the Borders region of Scotland situated on the hills overlooking the Ettrick Water. Hawick is a few miles south and Galashiels a few miles north. Selkirk was awarded royal burgh status during the 13th century although there is evidence of a settlement in the area dating back to c500AD with the building of a church. There was also a Roman Fort built a few miles to the south-west of the town. In 1513, approximately 100 men of Selkirk, known as Souters, marched to fight for their king at the battle of Flodden, Thomas Clapperton was the only survivor of the battle; his statue stands in the War Memorial. Sir Walter Scott was the sheriff of Selkirk from 1799-1832, his statue stands in Market Place along with the Sir Walter Scott’s Courtroom and the Halliwell’s House Museum. A statue of Mungo Park, the African explorer born in 1771, stands at the end of the High Street. A woollen mill was established in 1767 and Selkirk became famous for its production of fine tweeds, there is still a traditional weavers company in town. Selkirk is a popular tourist destination with hotel, holiday accommodation, shops and places to eat. Attractions include the Bowhill House and Country Park, the Whitlaw Mosses National Nature Reserve and there are driving tours available of Selkirk and Langholm.
