Discover Scottish Borders
This is a region which is drenched in the blood of countless battles with the English, and its many ruined castles and abbeys bear witness to this. It also has inspired the country's greatest poets and writers such as Robert Burns, John Buchan and Sir Walter Scott. The wildest and most spectacular scenery is to be found in the southern part of the region, but it is along the central valley of the River Tweed, between Peebles in the west and Kelso in the east, where you'll find most of the historic attractions. The hill walking and spa-town atmosphere of Peebles is recommended.
Abbotsford Hope Scott Wing
The Hope Scott Wing is perfectly situated amidst the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders, the beautiful scenery that inspired the 19th century novelist and poet, Sir Walter Scott. Wherever your interests lie, whether it be history, culture, romance, the great outdoors or rest and relaxation, you will find them amply represented here at the heart of “Scott Country".
