Chiefswood (also known as Burnfoot)

Introduction

The gardens at Chiefswood are associated with the early-19th-century house built by Sir Walter Scott. There are 19th- and 20th-century mixed woodlands and an ornamental walled garden which retains its 19th-century layout. A bog garden, shrubberies and rose garden all date to the period after 1959.
