Things to do

-A visit to the Bowhill House and Country Estate is a lovely way to spend a day in Selkirk. A guided tour takes visitors through the entire house where impressive collections of paintings, silverware, furniture, and porcelain are found. The estate has several marked walking paths, and the gift shop sells local crafts.

-The award-winning Halliwell's House Museum thoughtfully recreates the structure's original use as an ironmonger. The museum also serves as a historical museum for Selkirk. The Robson Gallery displays local art, crafts, and history exhibitions. There is a Visitor's Centre, an interactive children's area, as well as a shop selling books and souvenirs.

-Explore Sir Walter Scott's legacy and Selkirk's history at Sir Walter Scott’s Courtroom. Originally built as the Sheriff Court in 1803, this building is where the legendary Sir Walter Scott ruled as sheriff in Selkirkshire. The museum has an interesting exhibit on Scott's life, particularly his time as sheriff. The museum has a small gift shop and is handicap accessible.

-The Lochcarron Mill Visitor Centre and Coffee Shop is a highlight in Selkirk. Delicious coffee and homemade baked goods are available. The Scottish Visitor Centre displays Lochcarron's collection of wool knitwear, accessories, tartans, and tweeds. A tour of the wool mill is both informative and fun. Experienced guides lead visitors through every step of the process.

-From wonderful natural scenery and wildlife spotting, a trip to the Whitlaw Mosses is a good option. This nature reserve is filled with diverse plants and animals. Mosses and sedges along with beautiful flowering plants and willows cover the land. A nature lover's dream!

-The Old Gala House And Scott Gallery in Selkirkshire is a beautiful building with a centuries' old history. Visitors can discover the story of the Old Gala House and all of its former inhabitants. The museum's permanent collection showcases furniture, silverware, and clothing, and there is also an exhibition centred around local heritage.

Fantastic

5 of 5
Cannot reccomend Tweedrig enough. Right from the first time I enquired about the property the owners couldn't have been more helpful. Everything was so simple to arrange. Upon arriving the house was just brilliant. It was really clean and well put together. It has everything you need for a getaway. Unlike most self catering places it was so well equipt with everything. The views from tweedrig are fantastic. It's great for an option of chilling out but also so close to gala and Melrose if you wish to venture out. Would reccomend to anyone and would go back

Really enjoyed staying in this little studio. The owner, Julie, was more than helpful and has put a lot of thought into making the guest's stay comfortable. Would defiinitely book again.
