Discover Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott; one of Scotland’s most fascinating places. Created almost 200 years ago on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders, Abbotsford was the culmination of Scott’s creative ambitions as a writer and the fount of his inspiration.

Explore the historic house and discover a treasure trove of intriguing objects and unusual artefacts which inspired Scott’s greatest poems and novels. Learn about Scott’s life and achievements , browse the gift shop, dine in style in our restaurant or simply relax and unwind as you wander through the beautiful formal gardens and tranquil woodlands – a day out at Abbotsford has something for everyone.

After the success of last year's performance of 'The Tempest', this year's event promises just as much of a good time. The gardens will open for picnics from 6.00pm with the show starting at 7.00pm
