This old building and its surrounding land, is, step by step, being restored to its former glory by a dedicated team of volunteers. It has become a fantastic venue for weddings, functions or just walking your dog

Been to Selkirk many times and never knew this place existed. Well worth a visit, nice peaceful walks, plenty birdlife on the loch with opportunity for photography. The museum in the town centre is education especially for children.

Great setting but dreadful administration. Access road is like a river in wet weather as are the paths.
