Witch Corner at Abbotsford
Explore a wild-wood glen of Sir Walter Scott’s favourite stories and their mischievous creatures in this supernatural sculpture trail.
Witch Corner is a Scottish folklore and legend themed sculpture trail with twelve story stops directly inspired by the writings and trail-blazing research of Sir Walter Scott of Abbotsford. It takes its name from Scott’s nickname for his favourite section of the Abbotsford Library, his collection of 250 rare books about witchcraft, magic, folklore, and superstition.
Younger visitors can enjoy completing the Activity Booklet, solving the clues and completing the activities at each story stop. Older children and adults can explore the secrets behind the stories used in the trail on the Abbotsford app which includes a quiz and a Curator’s Cauldron audio guide.
