If you like tartan, woollens, Barbour goods, antler encore rated furnishings this is the place for you. Absolutely top quality products but unlike the outlet mall the other side of town not discounted. Still worth an hour or two for that special gift or item of clothing.

A delightful, romantic place....we saw the wedding barn and the special bedroom that couples can use on their wedding night. They also have a wide selection of affordable gifts in the gift shop so you can take a souvenir home with you. I bought a lucky sixpence that was traditionally worn inside the brides shoe to bring her good fortune.... More

Long time since I was last here, but seems Gretna Green has become a tourist trap for coach parties and other visitors with prices to match...disappointing but perhaps not unexpected in todays world. We were going to view the famous Blacksmith anvil but even that you have to pay for just to walk through the door...in the end gave up... More

Myself and my now husband got married here in mid October. The blacksmith we had on the day was fantastic, and the museum was interesting to wander around.

I must have driven past Gretna Green a hundred times, but never felt like dropping in to see something so tacky. But on this journey one of our party recommended the museum, so we turned off the motorway. I'm glad I allowed my predjudice to be overruled on this occasion. As soon as we started walking round the site I... More
