The Cauld And Salmon Viewing Centre

Work on the 30M Selkirk Flood Prevention Scheme has commenced. Regrettably there will be some disruption of the riverside walks.

It is hoped the work will be completed this year.

Modifications to the Cauld and fish pass are to be carried out to improve the efficiency of the hydro station this month.

A number of birds are to be seen along the river, including oyster catcher, wagtail, dipper and mallard.

Philiphaugh Gardens

In the gardens bedding plants and hanging baskets are doing well. Please see Robbie if you have not yet placed an order.


The gardens are open Monday to Friday 8-4 and weekends by appointment.


The estate has a number of beautiful walks at any time. Please collect a leaflet or consult the map in the salmon viewing centre for route information.

Salmon DVD

A fully narrated film entitled "The Philiphaugh Salmon" showing twenty minutes worth of the best, recorded images from the salmon viewing centre, will be available to purchase from the Waterwheel Restaurant.

The species included are salmon, trout, grayling, eel, perch, a brief view of an otter knocking the camera and a goosander swimming underwater below the cauld.

All proceeds will be used towards the upkeep of the centre, for the purchase of equipment, cameras and towards maintaining the facilities. The DVD is priced at £5.
