Both primary and secondary education is available in the town. A wider range of retail outlets can be accessed in nearby Hawick and Galashiels.

The ease of access to Edinburgh via the A7 by road and the Scottish Borders Railway with stations in nearby Tweedbank and Galashiels means Selkirk is also an attractive commuter location.
