helpful visitors centre
Sep 2018 • Couples
There is very helpful staff in th information centre who tied to track down an open hairdresser on a Monday- an almost impossible task. Nice selection of products to be for souvenirs. Visit the local shops and my husband bought a beautiful leather jacket. Ironically he had been looking for a long time but didn't find anything he liked.

Had made no bookings but were planning to continue north on the M74. Called in to Gretna Gateway and were pleased to find a visitor centre. Lady at the counter told us so much about the southwest of Scotland that we decided to head west rather then north. Had a terrific week with the six of us finding two rooms at hotels with no problems. Pleased to have spent the money there rather than the reportedly tourist honey trap of the Highlands.

A must to visit
Jul 2018 • Couples
Visited the Information shop at the Outlet Village in Gretna Green. Assisted by Claire who gave me more information than I could think off. Really pleased with her, her manner, approachability, friendly and full of smiles. I could not resist buying a few things. Enjoyed looking around the shop it was interesting with variety. Will definatly pop in again when passing.
Thank you Claire.

Popped in
Jul 2018 • Couples
On visiting the area I was in need of some helpful advice on sourcing an unusual gift of a onesie on one of the hottest days of the year. My grandaught had her heart set on a certain kind for her birthday. On popping in to the information centre I was expected to be either laughed at or given the directs to the nearest shops which we had already tried.
The lady did neither but listened to my strange question and gave me directions to the shops etc that would possible be my best options and I would be better asking the staff in these shops as its a good chance they would have onsies in the store rooms with out of season stock.
This advice was well received by my very hot, fed up hubby

Stopped to look around and use the restrooms

It's kind of a touristy stop, shopping, etc., wrapped up in the local lore of the fact that Gretna Green was the elopement capital. It was fine, people were friendly, but once is enough here.

Enjoyed a meal in the restaurant as we had time to kill waiting on our train.

This is pretty much the same as any outlet village, but still nice to have a walk around and have lunch.
