Sir Walter Scott moved to Cartleyhole Farm in 1812 and proceeded to redevelop the farm and area into what is now Abbotsford. This was the home where many of his literary works were written and where he developed an extensive library and armoury.
Abbotsford is open to the public.

SCOTT'S SELKIRK
Each December over the last few years the community has celebrated its historical connections in the form of a weekend celebration.
Market Square with Coourtroom and statue
Horse drawn coach

The event this year was on the 6th & 7th December and large numbers appeared in period costumes. There were horse drawn carriages offering trips along the centre of the town.


Carol players and singer

Christmas carol music was being played in the Market Square by various groups all in period costumes. Most of the shops were displaying items that would have been common at the time of Sir Walter Scott.
