The former home of Sir Walter Scott, who lived in the Scottish Borders, is set to re-open in July after a multi-million pound regeneration project.
Abbotsford House, based near Melrose, was home to the famous author who wrote works such as 'Rob Roy' and 'Waverley'.
The house, which sits on the banks of the River Tweed, faced a possible closure in 2004, after the last of Scott's descendants died.
However, the Abbotsford Trust managed to raise £12 million of the £14.5 million needed to fully restore the house and secure its future.
The funding has enabled major regeneration works to be carried out and the house will now be re-opened to the public on 4th July.
