Statement of Interest

Part of a short terrace including Nos. 106 (adjoining) and 108 & 110. The terrace is a good example of a mixture of housing and commercial premises and of a group of simple local stone buildings which make an important contribution to the streetscape of this part of Selkirk, situated as it is on a main road into the town.

This Building is known locally as 'The Porterhouse' and is known to have been a public house. This short terrace of buildings is marked on early O.S. maps as 'Sloethorn Bank' and steps lead directly from the front of this building to Dunsdale Haugh and Ettrick Mill. It is likely that this terrace had some close connection with the nearby Ettrick Mill, founded in 1835-6 and the biggest multi-storey spinning mill in the Borders.
