Lightbulb Post-Lockdown Scottish Stop Off Point

If you're planning on travelling across the Scottish border after lockdown or will be going on the M6 or M74 then Gretna Green is a really handy stop-off point, especially for long journeys with the kids. The Famous Blacksmiths Shop Attractions has lots to see as well as food and shopping. Even better, they have unlimited free daytime parking for motorhomes and caravans. Here's their site https://bit.ly/2Yokas4

It's absolutely gorgeous in the Spring/Summer so definitely worth stopping off once we can all start exploring again. You might even see a wedding happening while you're there!

I think it's just a one off advert.....but it's so crass that I don't think the advert will do any good anyway!

Why is it crass? Looks like, in normal times, there would be a lot to see n do on your way north/south.

Is it a good place to find a willing participant for a wedding? (Female preferably)

Just my opinion Jean!
Especially when the advertising is Spam........Free advertising just about fits the ethos of the place.
Geared to coaches mainly as mentioned.

It is a good spot for a stop off. There's a reasonable cafe and a very good, if expensive, food and cookery shop.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.
