In 2021-22 Scotland celebrates the 250th anniversary of one of its most famous sons, Sir Walter Scott.

Nobody has done more to give a nation a sense of itself. Through the mines of his imagination and the magic of his pen, he celebrated the history and landscapes of Scotland in a string of best-selling books that dominated the 19th century.

Scott’s legacy can still be experienced in the most extraordinary and unexpected places across Scotland, from castles to cashmere mills and from mountain tops to moments of mindfulness. Meet the real man behind the monument, whose imagination, integrity and patriotism shaped the Scotland of today.
