The Woods at Abbotsford along side The River Tweed are beautiful especially in the Autumn. Walking along these paths you may remind yourself that you are walking in the footsteps of Walter Scott.A prolific tree planter his was and there are some Spanish/Sweet Chestnuts here that he surely planted.They are huge and have wonderfully gnarled trunks.
