Led by a Braw Lad and Lass, horsemen patrol the town's borders and call at historic spots. Great-great-great granddaughters of Sir Walter Scott welcome them to Abbotsford, most of which is open to the public. Rhododen drons flame before a wing of the mansion erected after the writer's death. Scott built the gate and towers beyond.
