Abbotsford House

Abbotsford House

The home of celebrated novelist Sir Walter Scott, the gardens at Abbotsford House fringe the River Tweed and 200 years on still retain many of     the original features he instigated. This includes the general layout of the area, divided into three outdoor ‘rooms’: the South Court, the Morris Garden, and the Walled Garden. We’re a particular fan of the simple sunken Morris Garden, where plants take precedence. You’ll find longstanding roses here, and peonies in midsummer.

Must see: The gorgeous Walled Garden covering an acre of land with fantastic flowers as well as a Gothic orangery.
