Abbotsford - a magical place conceived by Sir Walter Scott

During his lifetime, Sir Walter wrote a stack of novels, poetry and plays that have made it onto the classics list such as; Ivanhoe, Rob Roy, The Lady of the Lake and the Waverley novels. The success of his literary output could probably be compared to that of JK Rowling today.

During our lifetime our relationship with Abbotsford has blossomed into a suite of websites - all linked with the sole purpose of discovering Sir Walter Scott’s passions, life and legacy.

The initial project, Scotts Abbotsford, presents the magic of his home and acts as the centre point that ties everything together. Stunning photography and intuitive navigation laid the foundation to tell the story of the place as somewhere to visit, to spend time in, to enjoy your wedding or special family get together and also to stay in as an exclusive holiday home.

Which brings us neatly onto Stay at Scott’s Abbotsford.

The Hope Scott Wing is very much a living museum that offers a true to life insight into the man himself and can be, exclusively, all yours (for reasonable price). For many years the Hope Scott Wing was one of Scotland’s best kept secrets - so much so that it just wasn’t being appreciated enough!

We were tasked with developing a stand alone website that would raise awareness, and bookings, of Abbotsford’s unique accommodation packages. Featuring many of our internal photos, to help set the scene, the site is integrated with Supercontrol which is an online booking system showing you current availability and prices for your next anniversary, wedding, birthday or christening celebration.

So go on - treat yourself!

And finally ...

... for the 250th anniversary of Scott’s birth the Abbotsford Trust launched Walter Scott 250 - a website dedicated to promoting Sir Walter Scott’s life and legacy through events and activities that will take place around Scotland in 2021/2022.

We were again approached, and more than happy, to develop a new website that offers a deeper understanding and accessibility to the man and his work. With limitless event partners needing to access the site to upload their own details and events a bomb proof bespoke CMS needed to be designed and developed from scratch.
