‘My Heart clings to the place I have created’
Abbotsford’s Hope Scott Wing provides luxury accommodation and a unique opportunity to experience the splendour of the surroundings that proved such an inspiration to Scott throughout his long and illustrious career.
The Hope Scott Wing has recently undergone an extensive £2.3 million refurbishment, retaining the intimacy and integrity of what was the private home of Scott, his granddaughter Charlotte Hope Scott and her descendants, while introducing all the essentials of modern-day comfort. Our aim is to offer visitors a real sense of what it would have felt like to be a valued guest in Scott’s own home.
In choosing Abbotsford, you will be following in the venerable footsteps of others who have made the pilgrimage to this jewel in Scotland’s crown, among them Queen Victoria, Charles Dickens, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, President Ulysses S. Grant and J.M.W. Turner.
The Hope Scott Wing has been designed to accommodate groups of up to 14 on a self-catering basis. A range of bespoke itineraries and catering services can also be arranged such as banqueting opportunities for you and your guests in Scott’s magnificent dining room, exclusive access to the grounds at certain times of the year, hunting and fishing in the local area, guided tours at other local historical attractions, golf, spa treatments and even a personal chef and butler service.
At Abbotsford Scott created “a palace of his imagination” – now let us help you create the perfect stay in the romantic palace that Scott imagined.
