Selkirk

Sir Walter Scott was the sheriff here. Nice old town but split up a bit by the main road running through. Statue to Mungo park the great (and forgotten) explorer who lived here. Good deli and pub, not much else. Highlight is probably the Baxters shop on the way out of town towards Galashiels. Awful fish and chips. Well worth a visit as its perhaps one of the few places to see the whole wonderful Baxters range. They sell good bread too, but again (like Kelso) don't cut it for you. Free soup tasting daily, like that. But they have unusual things and we always end up buying stuff.
