The famous author completed his ‘flibbertigibbet of a house’ in 1824, and his huge collection of books, weaponry and artefacts can still be visited in the collection. You stay in the Hope Scott Wing, created by Scott’s granddaughter to give the family greater privacy following his death.
The drawing room is vast with two big windows and a door to the garden; settle here in front of the fireplace with a book from the extensive library. There’s an industrial kitchen downstairs for caterers and a superb kitchen for you to use. Bedrooms (spread across two of your three floors) are large and light with really pleasing views, bathrooms have Scottish fine soaps and thick towels.
Barbecue in your own courtyard, prowl the gardens and river bank when all the visitors are gone – perhaps with a picnic. This is one of our Community Champions.
