Abbotsford House from the gardens

Sir Walter Scott built this house near Melrose, Scotland when he started to become a successful writer. It's on the river Tweed and the views are just stunning.

 

I enjoyed this house much more than I thought I would! There weren't many visitors the day we were there and we had the guide to ourselves. He was extremely knowledgable and made the tour very interesting.
