In the heart of the Scottish Borders and nestled close to the market square in The Royal and Ancient Burgh of Selkirk, the apartment makes a great place to spend a few days or extended break while exploring this fabulous and intriguing part of Scotland. Selkirk itself has a fascinating history going back to William Wallace and more recently links with Sir Walter Scott.

The space
Guest Comments
'This is a beautifully decorated flat and my daughter and I felt very
comfortable staying here. We stayed here in February and needed to put
on the heating. Luckily the owners had left very clear instructions how
everything worked and it didn't take long before the flat was lovely
and warm. The kitchen and living room are both spacious rooms and the
beds in both bedrooms were very comfortable - beautiful bed linen from
MS and a supply of fluffy towels. In the kitchen there is also a
washing machine. Just off the kitchen is a separate dining room. The
living room has a TV, DVD player and a record-player with an assortment
of LPs! If you're looking for a holiday in the Scottish Borders,
Selkirk is a lovely Borders town and I can recommend this property. '

The other Borders Towns are close by including Galashiels, Hawick,
Melrose and Jedburgh, while Edinburgh itself is only a 40 minute drive
or pleasant train ride on the recently reopened Borders Railway.
Montrose House is so called because the Earl and Marquis of Montrose
stayed here just before the Battle of Philiphaugh in 1645. He was known
to be a brave and proven General but was nonetheless heavily defeated
with huge loss of life, although he himself survived. There is a
commemorative plaque of his stay on the wall of the apartment.

The nearby Philiphaugh Estate has various trails and riverside
footpaths along the Ettrick Water. One of the trails leads to the
battlefield so you can imagine the scene of 5,500 men in the desperate
struggle between the Covenanters and Royalists. The Estate offers more
peaceful attractions as well which include a nice tearoom close to the
Salmon Viewing Centre

Sir Walter Scott best known as a writer, also served as Sheriff for 33
years and his legal connections should not be forgotten. The court
house that he presided over is open to the public and only a short walk
from the apartment and main town square. Walter Scott's life and times
can be further explored at nearby Abbotsford house. The beautiful
stately home of Bowhill House is not to be missed, only 3 miles from
the town. The house is set in superb grounds with access to woodland
walks to suit all and younger generations will have a whale of a time
enjoying organised orienteering package and amazing adventure
playground- ideal for children of any age and big kids too!

The wonderful Borders scenery provides a super backdrop to lots of
outdoor pursuits including golf, mountain biking, fishing on renowned
rivers and lochs or following peaceful footpaths through the
countryside.
