Those wishing to explore Scott Country further can choose from a range of outdoor pursuits, such as walking, fishing, shooting and golf. Alternatively, immerse yourself in the rich heritage and turbulent history of the Scottish Borders on an escorted tour with a dedicated guide.
Private dining with the services of a chef and butler are also available within the Hope Scott Wing, and for a really special experience, why not sit down to dinner at the majestic oak table in Scott’s private dining room.
This exquisite space overlooking the Tweed was, during Scott’s lifetime, one of Scotland’s most celebrated tables, entertaining the likes of William Wordsworth, the American writer Washington Irving and Prince Leopold, later King of Belgium.

It was one of Scott’s favourite rooms and to dine here, surrounded by atmospheric portraits of his immediate family, is truly to sit down with history.
Our goal is to make your stay in the Hope Scott Wing everything you want it to be – all you have to do is ask.
