This is a wonderful venue for those interested in a wedding-over-the-anvil or those who wish to see a novel piece of Scottish lore. My wife and I really enjoyed being there. There is so much to see and the atmosphere is lovely - with a great piper, who is very, very good. The downside is that everything is so expensive,... More

This site in general is very accessible to everyone, whether on foot or in a wheelchair,& I have visited in both, last year and this. Everywhere is very clean and the gardens are lovely the staff are very helpful. My friend and I had lunch in the Restaurant last week when we were there and it was superb.

It has now (understandably) become much for commercial. Maybe it is me getting old but it seems to have lost some of... More

Very amusing times had at Gretna Green. Our group photo for Contiki was taken place here. As a site to visit - it's quaint but pleasant with affordable bites to eat. Do go through the maze if you want a laugh or two. Just lovely.

Quaint area with interesting shops. Our bus tour stopped here and it was a fun stop but I wouldn't make a special trip here.

Sounded Gordon the way in, a romantic point where couple would run to and marry However when you get there it's just the blacksmith (very average marriage spot) and a lot of shops Good to pick up some souvenirs but needed no more than 25 minutes

Thank Peita J
