Gretna Green was our first stop on the way up to Kilmarnock to get to our house and we stopped there for lunch. Although the Blacksmiths shop is very much a tourist trap I think (you pay 80 pence to see the anvil where so many people have been married) it does have some charm. This is especially so when you arrive (as we did) just as a couple has been married there. You are of course not allowed into the blacksmiths shop during the ceremony but hearing the piper is lovely.
The bedroom was added later and is used as a setting for the wedding photos. Nearby is the new Gretna Green factory outlet complex for a bit of shopping if you want.
