Our new FREE to access Visitor Centre is home to a stylish Restaurant, Gift Shop and Exhibition on the life and legacy of Sir Walter Scott.
The House will reopen on 4th July 2013 after an extensive programme of much-needed repair and refurbishment.
Abbotsford acts as a gateway to exploring the beautiful countryside of the Scottish Borders, its history and its culture. Many of the great families and estates, such as the Dukes of Buccleuch at Bowhill and the Maxwell Stuarts at Traquair, have close connections to Sir Walter Scott and his descendants. Abbotsford provides a fantatstic experience for visitors with all the history of the house combined with the beautiful formal gardens and scenic woodland and riverside walks through the wider estate.
