Ettrick is a small village in the Scottish Borders located around 17 miles (28 km) south-west of the town of Selkirk. Ettrick Water is the river which flows through the Ettrick Valley, and across its flood plain, the Ettrick Marshes. It is the second fastest rising river in Scotland and at certain times of the year this is one of the best rivers for salmon fishing in Scotland. Permits for trout and grayling fishing can also be purchased locally. The beautiful Ettrick and Yarrow Valleys provide walks for all ages and abilities and a variety of outdoor pursuits such as horse riding, fishing, cycle touring and mountain biking, watersports and even paragliding, or you can simply explore the rolling landscape at your leisure.
The valleys offer some of the most beautiful and remote scenery in Scotland. Take a trip to St Marys Loch and the Loch of the Lowe. Wherever you are, you are surrounded by beautiful views and the peace and tranquility of the area. The famous novelist Sir Walter Scott spent time here and James Hogg, the celebrated Scottish poet and novelist, known as the Ettrick Shepherd, was born and lived here all his life. Tower Houses dotted around the valleys are evidence of a turbulent past of raiding across the Scottish - English border. Standing stones and bronze age settlements are links to even more ancient times.
