Abbotsford, the home of Sir Walter Scott, near Melrose

After Sir Walter Scott's lease lapsed on Ashiesteil, he purchased Cartleyhole estate. Cartleyhole was soon renamed Abbotsford, after a nearby ford used by the monks of Melrose Abbey, and the original farmhouse was enlarged and renovated greatly in three stages between 1811 and 1824. Abbotsford is now a tourist attraction.
