We have been to Gretna on several occasions. Most
recently our visits have been to go and stop a few days with a cousin
of mine called Jeffrey.
Gretna is a lovely little town just over the Scottish border
There is a place there called the Old Blacksmiths shop where
people years ago used to go to if they wanted to get married,
but didn't have their parents consent. They were married
over the anvil. Ceremonies are still held there to this
Many thousands of people visit here every year on there way
further north or further south, to visit the many and varied
gift shops and tartan shops.
The town is a must for anyone making there first journey up
to the Scottish Highlands.
