  • This was a favorite spot of sir Walter Scott, it is very peaceful and reflective, much history both older and newer.  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 »

  • After visiting Abottsford, we made it a point to visit Dryburgh Abbey as well. The final resting place of Sir Walter Scott was so peaceful and picturesque. I can certainly understand why he loved this place. Great staff and the kids really enjoyed finding the answers on the explorer sheets.
  • Lovely that the Abbey is Dog Friendly­čśŐ.Had a superb snowy visit on Saturday 30th January.
  • The second of the "Border Abbeys" we went to was Dryburgh. This is where Sir Walter Scott is buried, which should tell you something about it (for better and for worst). Despite that, it is deservedly renowned, and was far less touristed than nearby Melrose Abbey. The buildings are set amidst beautiful grounds, including some fine 17th, 18th, and 19th century tombstones in the scenic cemetery.
  • What a beautiful place would go back anytime
  • Of all the Border Abbey's, this was our favorite.
