SIR WALTER SCOTT

 

AN ELEGANT AND ROMANTIC ROOM

Inspired by Scotland’s great novelist and poet who visited Borthwick Castle and famously wrote that(1) Borthwick is by far the finest specimen of that class of Scottish Castles which consist of a single tower, surrounded by an embattled wall; and that it is “one of the most beautiful and entire specimens of castle architecture in Scotland”(2)

THE ROOM

This is an elegant and romantic room with restful blues and purple hues and a subtle hint of Scott’s passion for wildlife in its
fabrics and styling.

The handcarved oak bed is a replica of
Scott’s own. The small bathroom door opens to a luxurious and bespoke wet room set
within the castle wall.
