Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

My photograph, today, shows the home of Sir Walter Scott, Abbotsford Hall.

'Walter Scott was the foremost literary figure of his day. Born in 1771, and outliving by the time of his death in 1832 all the great romanticists except Coleridge and Wordsworth, he was incomparably better known than any of them.'

The house is situated in the Scottish Borders, near the river Tweed. The house itself was designed by Scott who was a great romantic. To me, because he was a romantic, it suited his style of drama and, maybe, inspired him with his stories.

The large gateway fitted the character of the house, again, full of drama!

I loved the location, set near wooded slopes with fine views over the river, though not a house I would enjoy living in; too large, dark and reputedly haunted!

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
