Due to Covid-19 restrictions, venues and exhibitions are closed until further notice. We recommend checking with the venues' own websites for up-to-date information. Sir Walter Scott sat as Sheriff in this historic building, dispensing justice to the town of Selkirk for nearly 30 years until his death in 1832. On display are personal objects that once belonged to the world famous writer of great literary works that included Rob Roy and the Waverley novels. Nearby, in the Market Square, an impressive monument is dedicated to Sir Walter.
