Solicitors in Selkirk


Selkirk, or to give it its full name the Royal Burgh of Selkirk, is a town found within the Scottish Borders council district, of south east Scotland. The town can be found along the course of the Ettrick Water, which is a tributary of the larger River Tweed.

People who live in the town of Selkirk are affectionately known as ‘Souters’ which means cobblers and is presumably a nod to one of the earliest industries to flourish within the settlement.

A Brief History Of Selkirk

The town of Selkirk is one of the oldest so-called Royal Burghs in Scotland, and is believed to be one of the earliest established settlements within the Scottish Borders region of the country. The town’s name comes from the church (explaining the suffix of –kirk) of the Selgovae, who were an original tribe from the Roman Empire’s invasions of Caledonii.

Remaining within the religious sphere, the town of Selkirk was the location of the first Border Abbey but the community of Tironensian monks who made their home their eventually relocated to Kelso during the reign of King David I.

In more modern history, the town can trace much of its expansion and growth back to the strength of the woollen industry within the settlement, although this has now long since declined.

Modern Day Selkirk

Today, Selkirk is a reasonably sized town with a population of close to 6,000 permanent residents according to the latest estimates. This is not a high enough figure to rank Selkirk amongst the major population centres of Scotland, but is enough to mean that for solicitors Selkirk can be a comparatively likely source of compensation claims.

This is the case as having that level of population makes accidents and injuries more likely and this therefore makes it more important for you to learn about compensation and solicitors in Selkirk.
