Most tourists interested in Sir Walter Scott these days go to Abbotsford house.
However Sir Walters stories about the Borders are just as, if not more interesting.
We journey from Abbotsford to the wild and isolated hills and valleys of Peeblesshire in search of his dark character “the Black Dwarf”
