It borders Peeblesshire to the west, Midlothian to the north, Roxburghshire to the east, and Dumfriesshire to the south. It derives its name from its county town, the Royal burgh of Selkirk. Between 1890 and 1975, Selkirkshire was one of the thirty-three administrative counties of Scotland. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selkirkshire).
