SELKIRK is set for a treble turn of tourist delights this weekend.

Not only is the hugely popular Scott's Selkirk returning to the Royal Burgh on Saturday, but the town will also host the foot-tapping delights of the Selkirk Sessions as well as the new monthly Farmers' Market.

The busy weekend comes just as the new-look Market Place refurbishments are completed.

Viv Ross from Scott's Selkirk told us: "A busy weekend is in store – with something for everyone.

"We look forward to welcoming everyone to our annual celebrations."

Dozens of Souters will turn back the clock to relive the days of Scott.

As well as re-enactments, period costumes and fayre from centuries gone, there will be plenty of street entertainment throughout Scott's Selkirk.

Meg Dods’ ever-popular Kitchen has been relocated to the High Street.

The music and puppets of Crafty Beggars will share the town centre with Les Amies d’Ono's Billy Bowler the Performing Goat.

And there will be plenty Victorian children’s games, including Splat the Rat and a coconut shy, to keep the youngsters entertained.

Matthew Burgess has taken over the role of Town Cryer from his late father Bob.

And he will be accompanied by young drummer boys Hamish and Cameron throughout his duties.

George Renton will ride into town with his penny-farthing.

And this year there will also be a Scott’s Selkirk shop window treasure hunt – with forms available from the Scott’s Selkirk Shop.

This year Sir Walter Scott will be presiding over The Tall Tale of the Tushielaw Trout, and the Lady Varnishes in his Courtroom.

Down below the Courthouse Gael Force, Carlenjig, The Bogie Close Stompers, Highline Fiddlers, Bob Liddle and the Riddell Fiddles will all adorn the stage at some point during the packed programme.

Viv added: "We are really looking forward to the open mic sessions where we will no doubt be treated to some exceptional music.

"There will also be a host of talented buskers in both the Market Place and the High Street to add to the entertainment."

As well as Scott's Selkirk, the Farmers' Market will operate on Saturday and throughout the weekend - from Friday evening to Sunday - Selkirk Sessions will be staged in venues across the town.
