Foulshiels, birthplace of Mungo Park
Mungo Park, the Scottish surgeon and explorer, was born in 1771 at Foulshiels in the Yarrow Valley near Selkirk. Viewed from the A708, this shows the remains of the old cottage where he was born, at Foulshiels Farm. A commemorative stone tablet was inserted in the front wall of the cottage in 1888.
