Abbotsford, The Home of Sir Walter Scott

Borders

50% off entry

Few places in the world evoke the power of the romantic past more than Abbotsford, stunningly located on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders.

Abbotsford sits at the heart of the landscape that inspired the poetry and novels of its creator, Sir Walter Scott. Unlike the homes of other great writers, this is a house that the writer himself designed and is a physical representation of the Romantic Movement that he helped to create.

The house contains an impressive collection of historic relics, weapons and armour, including Rob Roy's gun, dirk and sword, and an extensive library containing over 9,000 rare volumes. It sits amid formal gardens and a wider landscape that Scott designed and planted.
