Maybe it’ll inspire you too? Explore the mansion and its gardens. Discover a wealth of objects and artefacts that made their way into his work. Learn about his life and the many achievements he got through his plays, novels and poetry. The beautiful garden looks like it sprung straight from one of Scott’s historical romances - he designed it himself with advice from artists, architects, and friends.
