Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop

Tourist Shop

Headless Cross, Gretna Green, Dumfries and Galloway, DG16 5EA

    Gretna Green Famous Blacksmiths Shop is a shopper’s paradise – and the exciting range of stylish brands to be found here ensures that even though you may not be eloping, your pulse will most certainly be racing!

    Gretna Green is a place that will always be associated with fuelled passions, but these days the village provides an altogether different type of passion… the all-consuming passion that the discerning shopaholic experiences when they find the perfect cashmere sweater or designer handbag with a price tag that simply cannot be ignored.

    The layout of the shopping features is charming, with quaint cottage-style buildings surrounding a courtyard and sculpture garden. As well as a Foodhall selling delicious local produce and Scottish delicacies; a place to sample and buy whiskies from all across Scotland and a beautiful home-style shop, the main shopping outlet will amaze!  Step through the doors of this ‘cottage’ frontage and be prepared for a surprise as a vast shopping area extends out in front of you. 

    You are met by an array of colours and designs and you are immediately transported into a world of retail therapy!  This shopping feature is definitely boutique but on a bigger scale and with lots of choice! There’s a fabulous range of products, including many top brand names such as Hunter, Barbour, Harris Tweed and Lyle & Scott alongside the company’s very own range: the Gretna Green Collection.  In addition there’s a delightful array of unusual products from independent designers and manufacturers from all over the UK and overseas. The shopping environment is full of character with unusual displays, quirky fixtures and fittings: in a sense a retail work of art.  This is a shop where sleek meets quirky.
