Plan Your Visit
Come and explore Abbotsford’s historic house, chapel, gardens, gift shop, Ochiltree’s café and free Sir Walter Scott exhibition.
Abbotsford is the extraordinary home of Sir Walter Scott, the 19th century novelist and ‘Great Scott’ who popularised tartan, saved the Scottish banknote and rediscovered his country’s Crown Jewels.
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.
The 19th century saw Sir Walter Scott establishing an international reputation as Scotland’s most prolific and successful writer, but his abiding interest was tree-planting.
