NE ELEVATION: whinstone rubble with single window to upper right.

Part of a short terrace including No.106 (adjoining) and Nos. 102-104. 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.
The terrace 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.
