Abbotsford House

Abbotsford House is the ancestral home of Sir Walter Scott, the famous 19th century novelist and poet. It is beautifully located on the banks of the River Tweed, set within a landscape that inspired the poetry and novels of its creator. Scott even designed the house himself. The home's fragrant, colourful gardens are also worth a visit, or you can take a walk here along one of the trails in the surrounding woodlands.
