Overview

We are offering people the opportunity to become part of Scotland’s history, as you can add your very own stitch to the welcome panel which will be on display at the new Great Tapestry of Scotland visitor centre, which will open in Galashiels in Spring 2021.

The tour makes its stop at Abbotsford on 30 May 2020, 10:00 to 17:00 – Standing on the banks of the River Tweed near Galashiels, Abbotsford was the creation of the famous 19th century Scottish novelist, poet and playwright Sir Walter Scott. It was built almost 200 years ago on the proceeds of his successful literary career. Abbotsford is an enduring monument to the tastes, talents and personal tragedies of its creator.
