Abbotsford House, Scottish Borders

5 Mar 2012 by annabel

A wedding taking place at Abbotsford House following a massive renovation project.After many years of decline it is exciting to see the historic home of Sir Walter Scott being totally restored and given a new lease of life.  A massive fundraising campaign has raised sufficient funds to build an exciting new visitor centre (due for completion in June 2012) which will be followed by the opening of the Hope Scott Wing in July 2013.  This will provide 7 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms for luxury rentals along with dining room, sitting room, library, billiard room and access to Sir Walter Scott’s dining room.

The main rooms of the house will remain open to the public and some will be available for private events and weddings, along with the gardens and extensive lawns overlooking the Tweed.  Abbotsford is a very important home for the people of the Borders and it is a much needed boost to Border tourism.  Scott has been largely overlooked by his own kinsmen but is still hugely admired in the US and widely read by students in Russia.  LTR has contributed both financially and with advice to the project and we continue to keep an eye on developments.  Roll on next summer!

For more information on this exciting project please call Andrew Loyd on + 44 1835 824 s642 or email ANDREW@LTR.CO.UK

  • “I wanted to write an old-fashioned thank you for organising a truly wonderful Christmas at the Tower of Lethendy – we had the most incredible time. The castle is absolutely beautiful and so comfortable. Juris and the staff were wonderful looking after our every need. The activities we organised were simply fantastic and my whole family, parents, sister, children and both my husband and I loved every bit of everything.” C.C. , Hertfordshire
