Selkirk Court House

Selkirk Sheriff Court (Cùirt an t-Siorraim in Scottish Gaelic) provides local court service in Scotland. The office of sheriff dates from the early days of the Scottish monarchy. Generally, one of the more powerful local lords in each county was appointed and the office became hereditary in his family. The original purpose of the sheriff was to exercise and preserve the King's authority against the rival powers of the local lords and the sheriff became the local representative of the King in all matters, judicial and administrative.
