  • This was a favorite spot of sir Walter Scott, it is very peaceful and reflective, much history both older and newer.  more »
  • Beautiful trees and grounds. Very informative placards and staff. Loved that the trees were labeled. Well preserved.  more »
  • Visited here while staying at the Dryburgh Abbey Hotel next door. Very impressive ruined Abbey which is the last resting place of Sir Walter Scott and Earl Haig of Bemersyde.  more »
