About Selkirk

The Royal Burgh of Selkirk is a town in the Borders of Scotland. It lies on the Ettrick Water, a tributary of the River Tweed. At the time of the 2001 census, Selkirk's population was 5,839. The people of the town are known as Souters, which means cobblers (shoe makers and menders). Selkirk was formerly the county town of Selkirkshire. Selkirk is one of the oldest Royal Burghs in Scotland and is the site of the earliest settlements in what is now the Scottish Borders. The town's name originates from the church (kirk) for the Selgovae, who were an original tribe from the Roman Empire's invasions of Caledonii. (Improve this description or add photos)
