Highlights: Gretna Green, Keswick, Bowness-on-Windermere, Kirkstone Pass, Moffat, New Lanark Mills, Scottish Border Country, Edinburgh Tattoo (Aug 5 departure)
The romantic village of Gretna Green, just across the Scottish border, has become well known as the venue for runaway marriages over the years. The village blacksmith performed the ceremonies, and the old Blacksmith’s Shop still has an anvil in the marriage room. Because of its location, the village makes an excellent base for touring, with the Lake District National Park within an hour’s drive, and the tranquil Border Country of Sir Walter Scott, with its ancient abbeys around the River Tweed, easily reached to the north.
