Author : Bernard Byrom
ISBN : 9781840336955
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.00

The countys castles date from those violent times when the Borders were subject to the rough wooing of the English and the Border Reivers. When peace became the norm, the pele towers fell into ruin and their families built mansions, as did those of the nouveau riche mill owners of the Tweed Valley. Some of these Selkirkshire houses are seen here at their Edwardian zenith. Later some of these owners fell on hard times as economic decline and the two wars took their toll and many country houses were lost. In this book there is a selection of the countys posh real estate together with the history of the properties and their owners.
