Plan Your Visit
Come and explore Abbotsford’s historic house, chapel, gardens, gift shop, Ochiltree’s café and free Sir Walter Scott exhibition.
Visit the extraordinary home of Sir Walter Scott, where he became the biggest-selling author of his day and the fashion for Scots Baronial architecture began.
Sir Walter Scott’s imagination and creativity extended beyond the walls of his house into the outdoors and the creation of beautiful formal Regency gardens.
Free and open to all, the Abbotsford Estate offers a variety of woodland and river side walks. This unique landscape was created and developed by Sir Walter Scott.
The Visitor Centre
Our visitor centre with its café, exhibition and gift shop is open all year round and free to access. Indulge in some shopping, meet friends for coffee or set off to explore.
