We arrive in Selkirk with our small band. Philiphaugh is the site of a fierce and bloody battle, fought between the Covenanters and the Royalists on the 13th September 1645. We were welcomed by the Provost as we charged the crowd nearly running over the photographers.
The Covenanters were supporters of a Scottish Presbyterian faith, which was under threat from Charles 1. The Royalists were supporters of the Crown and willing to defend the King's rule.
