Hotels in Selkirk
Set in the heart of the Scottish Borders, Selkirk Hotels are surrounded by rich national heritage and sublime countryside vistas, and are a short trip from the city of Edinburgh.
One of the oldest Royal Burghs in Scotland, Selkirk has had a rich lineage that spans the entire history of the Scottish Borders. William Wallace was proclaimed Overlord of Scotland in the town and the writer Sir Walter Scott was Sherriff of the town from 1803 to 1832. The sheriff court is now a museum called Sir Walter Scott's Courtroom and features an informative exhibition on the life and times of the author of Rob Roy and Waverley.
Halliwell Close, the oldest building in the town, also houses a museum, Halliwell's House Museum & Robson Gallery. Here you'll find a reconstructed 18th-century ironmonger's shop as well as a number of exhibitions detailing the history of Selkirk and the surrounding area.
Close to Selkirk is Bowhill House & Country Estate, a beautiful country house that has belonged to the Scotts of Buccleuch for more than seven centuries. There are guided tours of the house itself, an elegant tearoom for adults and a fun adventure playground for the kids. The grounds also feature a number of walking routes and trails for wildlife enthusiasts, and the estate's old cold-storage room has also been renovated into a 72-seat theatre. Also nearby is Traquair House, a 12th-century hunting lodge that features a brewery and a full hedge maze.
The Philiphaugh Salmon Viewing Centre is popular with kids, where you can watch live footage of salmon swimming upstream and learn about the animal's natural life cycle. Other destinations for nature lovers include the Whitlaw Mosses, a nature reserve with a burgeoning variety of wildlife, and the lush Traquair Forest.
An hour's journey to the north will take you to the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. Here you'll find a variety of historical and cultural attractions, from the iconic Edinburgh Castle to the shops along Princes Street. Travel south and cross the border to England and you'll reach Northumberland National Park, a vast area with an enormous network of walks and trails to explore.
