Hope Scott Experience

Wherever your interests lie, you will find them amply represented here at the heart of “Scott Country”. Your wish is our command and your itinerary can be tailor-made to suit every occasion.

Our experienced staff will be delighted to help you plan that special stay. From writing, history, culture, romance, the great outdoors or rest and relaxation, 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.

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 is 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 and the American writer Washington Irving. It was one of Scott’s favourite rooms and to dine here is truly to sit down with history.
