Robert Louis Stevenson Cottage

The renowned author of Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde stayed in this cottage during the winter of 1887-88, hoping to recover from tuberculosis. Despite his disease, he continued to smoke about four packs of cigarettes a day. During his stay, he wrote The Master of Ballentrae: A Winter's Tale, which was published in 1889, and several essays for Scribner's magazine. This site, established in 1915, contains the world's first and largest collection of Robert Louis Stevenson memorabilia.

Open: July 1-Sept 15, Tue-Sun, 9:30 a.m. - 12 p.m., 1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. / There is an admission fee.
