The Hope Scott Wing – Luxury Accommodation in the Scottish Borders

Stay at the home of Sir Walter Scott Scotland’s most prolific and successful writer

The Hope Scott Wing has been designed to accommodate groups of up to 15 on a self-catering basis. A range of bespoke itineraries and catering services can also be arranged such as banqueting opportunities for you and your guests in Scott’s magnificent dining room, exclusive access to the grounds at certain times of the year, hunting and fishing in the local area, guided tours at other local historical attractions, golf, spa treatments and even a personal chef and butler service. At Abbotsford Scott created “a palace of his imagination” – now let us help you create the perfect stay in the romantic palace that Scott imagined.

Wherever your interests lie – in writing, history, architecture, culture, romance, the great outdoors or rest and relaxation – you will find them amply represented here at the heart of “Scott Country”. Your wish is our command and your itinerary can be tailor-made to suit every occasion.
