With this admission ticket to Abbotsford, the way you spend your time is up to you.
The museum can be easily reached from Edinburgh Waverley Train Station by taking the Borders Railway to Tweedbank, and then taking a 20-minute walk while you follow signposts pointing you in the right direction.
Choose what you’d like to do at the museum for the day, and make sure you have enough time to wander through all the places you’ve picked. The museum includes a visitor’s center, the house, the estate, the gardens, shops, and eateries.
Learn about Sir Walter Scott as you go, and visit spots where he went to get inspiration for some of his most famous works. Key sights to see are the entrance hall of the house, Morris Garden, and the armory. Scott also had a collection of gargoyles, so keep an eye out for them as you travel all around Abbotsford.

Enjoyed the whole experience. The commentary in the style of Sir Walter Scott really added to the experience for me. Apart from the house there are the gardens and a number of walks plus a picnic area. Also enjoyed the the exhibition in the ticket area. We had intended to try the cafe however there was a massive queue so went into Melrose instead. Would have liked to see upstairs if only for the views and a bedroom upstairs styled in the period would have been interesting to see.
