Narrated Walk around Sir Walter Scott’s Abbotsford Estate

24th September 2022 - 24th September 2022

Join Gavin Hewitt, Chairman of the Friends of Abbotsford Committee, on a narrated walk around Sir Walter Scott’s Abbotsford estate, drawing on Scott’s letters, Journal and his detailed notes on the development of his tree plantations.

This walk is around 7km (about 2½ hours) and will leave from the Visitor Centre at 10.30am sharp; taking in Abbotsmoss, Cauldshiels Loch, Faldonside Loch before returning back to Abbotsford. It will follow minor roads and some rougher tracks. Stout shoes or walking boots are recommended.
