Return trip

We got married here 20 years ago, and returned for old times sake. Our impression now is of a much more commercialised place, clean and a little clinical if I am honest.. Still... read more

Went with my best friends who have been married for 31 years to have a blessing and couldn't have been happier with the event. Anne was very attentive, patient and informative. She made the whole experience very personal, helped out with my A attempts at photographs and even held the dogs lead when we wanted a picture without her in... More

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.

We got married here 20 years ago, and returned for old times sake. Our impression now is of a much more commercialised place, clean and a little clinical if I am honest.. Still nice to visit, but lacks the personal touch of 20 years ago

This was a trip down memory lane for my wife and I. We got married here over 15yrs ago. We hadn't been back since getting married. This time we visited with our son. The place was very different. 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.
