Abbotsford, the home that Sir Walter Scott built on the banks of the River Tweed, is the enduring legacy of one of the world’s greatest writers. This Scottish Baronial creation lies in the heart of the stunning landscape which inspired his poetry and novels.

The Hope Scott Wing has undergone a sensitive refurbishment retaining the intimacy and integrity of what was part of the private home of Scott and his descendants, with all the essentials of modern day comfort. Seven luxury bedrooms are individually styled and named after distinguished guests who stayed there. The public rooms include a sumptuous drawing room, formal dining room, a reading room, billiard room, spacious interior designed kitchen, private courtroom and patio garden. Original features have been retained as well as some original artwork and furniture creating a unique combination of the personal and the historical in this intimate country retreat.

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 with an escorted tour with a dedicated guide.

A cook and full housekeeping service can be arranged if required.

Sleeping 14, Hope Scott Wing is an ideal gathering place for families, groups of friends or colleagues celebrating a special occasion.

Short breaks are available - 4 nights during the week (Mon - Thurs) and 3 nights over the weekend (Friday - Monday).
