Selkirk is an attractive town extending from the hilltop location of its Market Place and High Street down steep slopes to the impressive old woollen mills and more modern industrial estates along the valley of the Ettrick Water.

The town was famous for its shoemaking industry and later was best known for woollen mill, producing yarn for use in Musselburgh. The heart of Selkirk today remains its market place, part of a medieval street plan that survived the English attack in 1513 even if most of the buildings didn't. Overlooking the town from the south east is the courtroom in which Sir Walter Scott acted as Sheriff of Selkirk from 1799 until his death in 1832. This now serves as a museum. In front of it stands the large statue of Sir Walter erected in 1839. Further along the High Street is the Mungo Park Monument,  celebrating the African explorer born nearby in 1771.
