You can help preserve Abbotsford for future generations.

Our continuing challenge is to safeguard the long term future of the iconic building that Scott created and that is the physical manifestation of the imagination of a man so important to the history of Scotland. You can help to support the ongoing conservation work at Abbotsford and preserve Sir Walter Scott’s unique historic home for future generations.

By supporting The Abbotsford Trust, you will help to cherish, restore and protect the world’s most extraordinary literary home. Your support will also help us to share the world of Scott with thousands of people of all ages through our work with schools, colleges and other organisations.
