Her Majesty The Queen will officially open Abbotsford House on Wednesday 3rd July following a multi-million pound restoration project.
The Queen will be given a tour of the house before unveiling a plaque commemorating the occasion.
Her Majesty will also be introduced to guests at the opening reception, including trustees and employees of The Abbotsford Trust, the Trust’s funding partners and a number of Sir Walter Scott’s descendants from the UK and overseas.
The former home of Sir Walter Scott has been closed for almost two years.
“The Abbotsford Trust is delighted that Her Majesty The Queen accepted our invitation to officially re-open this historic property.
"Abbotsford is one of the most famous houses in the world, built by a man whose cultural and literary legacy cannot be underestimated.
"We believe that Abbotsford is set to become both an important cultural centre and tourist destination for the Scottish Borders and are honoured that Her Majesty will be one of the first people to tour this rejuvenated attraction.”
