Stunningly located on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders, Sir Walter Scott’s Abbotsford House sits at the heart of the landscape that inspired the poetry and novels of its creator. Unlike the homes of other great writers, this is a house the writer himself designed and as such, uniquely embodies a physical representation of the Romantic Movement that he helped to create. When you touch the bricks and mortar of Abbotsford, you are touching the soul of Scott. In addition to the House and Garden, The Visitor centre, exhibition, gift shop, café and woodland play trail are open all year around and free to access.
