Earlier research indicated that a general store operated on the western side of the Gretna Green Hotel so I padded up the Lyell Highway, past the drinking establishment and its drinkers resting on their vehicles outside, and stood in front of the glass fronted shop. The dust was settled. The space was empty. Clearly no-one had been inside for a long time.
I turned and plodded down to the pub, giving the chatty locals something to take their minds off their beers, and entered a small historic building with many small rooms leading off each other.
Strangely, I forgot to take a photograph when I first looked at the hotel. This image comes from the internet – please note accommodation is no longer offered. I have just discovered the pub has its own Facebook site with more photos. Hmm. I must write a review for them.
