Bakke Church at Skotselv and Fiskum Church at Darbu, were opened in 1883 and 1866, respectively.

Skotselv is a village with a population approximately of 684 inhabitants, which 8 people live within the border of the neighbouring municipality of Modum. It has a railway station on the Randsfjordbane. The main attraction in Skotselv is unarguable the "Dyvelgården", an old mansion representing the celluloid area of the village. Another important place to the village is the public school.
