What You'll Get

Visit: Famous Blacksmiths Shop, Gretna Green, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland

he blacksmith's cottage and workshop sit virtually untouched and you can easily imagine those fleeing lovers, hands clasped tightly, awaiting the moment when the Blacksmith Priest strikes the Anvil and declares "Under the ancient rights and laws of Scotland you are now man and wife."
The past is brought to life when you enter the ancient building of the blacksmith's cottage and workshop. Passing through the narrow walls and low ceiling of this building the eerie atmosphere captivates you as you hear the voices of a frantic young couple as they make the dramatic dash over the border claiming "It must be tonight! It must be tonight!" Imagine the hopes and fears of the young elopers as they plan their daring dash: Will the marriage take place without bloodshed? Will the angry father arrive in time to stop the marriage?
