    The Country Houses, Castles And Mansions Of Peeblesshire
    Bernard Byrom - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    A compact county of 354 square miles Peeblesshire has its fair share of castles and country houses. The former were necessarily defensive and the latter showy and fancy. Some, like Traquair, spanned the transition and are a bit of both. In this small volume there are 61 photos of various properties, mainly from the Edwardian period, the heyday of the country seat.
  • Cover scan of The Country Houses, Castles And Mansions Of Selkirkshire
    The Country Houses, Castles And Mansions Of Selkirkshire
    Bernard Byrom - Paperback - Stenlake Publishing
    The castles in the Scottish Borders date from those violent times when the Borders were subject to the 'rough wooing' of the English and the Border Reivers. When peace became the norm, the pele towers fell into ruin and their families built mansions, as did those of the nouveau riche mill owners of the Tweed Valley. Some of these Selkirkshire houses are seen here at their Edwardian zenith. Later some of these owners fell on hard times as economic decline and the two wars took their toll and many country houses were lost. In this book there is a selection of the county's posh real estate together with the history of the properties and their owners.
