Homes of the Romantic Age Poets

Homes of the Romantic Age PoetsSir Walter Scott, who regaled his readers with heroic stories of historic Scotland in works such as Ivanhoe and Rob Roy, was passionate about Abbotsford, his property that lay along the banks of the River Tweed in Roxburghshire. Upon purchasing the 110 acres, he immediately expanded his holding tenfold and set about fashioning a massive residence to complement the scenic acreage. More castle than abode, Abbotsford’s dramatic interiors reflect the author’s grand vision for his home.
