Gretna

Gretna is a beautiful town positioned next to the infamous wedding town of Gretna Green, within the wider Dumfries and Galloway area of the Scottish Borders. Offering visitors a fantastic chance to explore both Scotland and England, with many nearby activities and attractions. Enjoy the wide-open spaces, and fresh unpolluted air in this area of tremendous natural beauty.

Gretna Green is known as a romantic destination, with some fascinating local history, especially concerning the history of the town with runaway marriages from young English couples hoping to get married at a younger age in Scotland. The wider local history of the area is also fascinating from the infamous Border Reivers to the activities of Robert the Bruce in the area.
