Abbotsford and River Tweed
About This Route
An easy circular following old railway lines paths, tracks and the banks of the River Tweed. Abbotsford was the home of Sir Walter Scott. His estate is one of the most significant designed landscapes in Scotland, laid out between 1811 and 1825. Many of the paths through Abbotsford are just as Scott designed and laid out in late Georgian times.
