Abbotsford House, Melrose

E&Co are the structural consultants for the conservation of the home of Sir Walter Scott, cultural icon and father of the Scottish tourism industry, who in the early C19 transformed a modest farmhouse into a homage to Scottish architecture. Domestic in scale, it attracts busloads of foreign visitors; so better access and new visitor facilities outwith the house are also being designed.
