As a charitable organisation, we rely on your generosity to help safeguard Abbotsford and Sir Walter Scott’s legacy for future generations.
Why Support the Abbotsford Trust
Abbotsford, the Home of Sir Walter Scott, is one of the most renowned houses in the world. It reflects the imagination, enthusiasms and preoccupations of the man who designed and built it, and is the physical embodiment of the classic Scott novel: a delightful and dramatic reinterpretation of Scotland’s past, charmingly laid out for the cultural enrichment of its future.
You can help to preserve this extraordinary historic legacy, by supporting the Abbotsford Trust.
Our mission is:
To preserve, protect and improve the Abbotsford buildings and contents and land associated with Sir Walter Scott and his family for the benefit and enjoyment of the public;
To advance the education of the public in relation to the life and works of Sir Walter Scott and the history of Abbotsford. With your support we can continue to achieve this important goal: today and for future generations.
