Old Photograph Post Office Yarrow Feus Scotland


Old photograph of people outside the Post Office in the village of Yarrow Feus located seven miles West of Selkirk, Scottish Borders, Scotland. The village is located on the course of the Yarrow Water which is a tributary of the Ettrick Water, itself a tributary of the River Tweed, and renowned for its high quality trout and salmon fishing. The area was the birthplace of Mungo Park and has inspired several well known songs and poems. Its traditions and folk tales were well documented by Walter Scott, who spent part of his childhood nearby, and in adult life returned to live in the vicinity at Abbotsford House, near Melrose.
