Barnacle Geese & Whooper Swans

Thousands of other birds - such as Whooper Swans from Iceland - also make the journey to these specially protected wintering grounds. So if you're looking for a Winter Wildlife Break idea then why not consider combining a visit to see this bird spectacular with a touch of luxury and stay with us at Smiths at Gretna Green hotel. We are offering this at the special Winter Wildlife Break rate of £125, for a couple (subject to availability) including full Scottish breakfast.

Gretna Green Sponsor

Earlier this year we sponsored a young pair of Whooper Swans at Caerlaverock which were ringed with special tags - GGS for Gretna Green Scotland and FBS for Famous Blacksmiths Shop.

Therefore, we're eagerly awaiting the return of these birds from their Icelandic summer breeding grounds to Caerlaverock in October (you too can be on the look-out) where they will still until March/April next year.
