An ideal place to stop for a break before entering Scotland by car. Plenty of eating places with good toilets. Shops on site if buying presents are required . Wedding facilities and packages available as a speciality. Good parking with wheel chair access.
This has become a real tourist attraction. There is little left from the simplicity it used to have and it keeps getting bigger. There are a lot of different shops on site and a large car park. The shops sell amongst other things: clothing, food, jewellery and specific wedding items. It does look lovely and is well kept. You can still get married there!
