In Stock or 2 Week Delivery?
-----------------------------------------------

We strive to hold the majority of our advertised products in stock but due to the nature of some of these products (specific tartans & sizes) we do from time to time sell out of certain items.

Where an item shows as IN STOCK on our site then our stock is correct from the hour previous and you should expect your order to arrive in the timescale appropriate to your delivery choice.

Where an item shows as 2 WEEK DELIVERY then this item is currently on order with our suppliers and is estimated to arrive with you within this timescale, if not before. Please note it is not recommended that you choose the express delivery option for these item/s.

Where can we deliver to?
-----------------------------------------------

Here at Gretna Green Ltd we can deliver all over the world. In fact it's something we specialise in since we have many international visitors who come to the Famous Blacksmiths Shop every year and would like some of our lovely gifts sent home for them. See below for details of the countries we send to and the prices.


Despatch Timescales
-----------------------------------------------

We aim to despatch every order in 1 - 2 working days. This does not apply to 'Express' next working day or Saturday orders received before 12.30pm Monday - Friday which are despatched the same day. Any orders received over the weekend (including Express orders) will be despatched on the following Monday.

Please note that any orders received over a weekend prior to a bank holiday will be despatched the next postal collection day (the following Tuesday) as there is no postal collection from us on bank holidays. It is not recommended that you choose the express delivery option for any item/s ordered before these public holidays.

Additionally, orders to addresses which fall within the Express Delivery exclusion areas (please see below) may take longer than the anticipated delivery timescale due to the distance. Please note that orders placed with courier delivery may be delivered by Royal Mail at the discretion of the courier company.

We use two methods for our delivery, Royal Mail for parcels up to 1kg (UK) & 2kg (International) and Parcelforce Worldwide as an express option within the UK and for orders up to 30kg (volumetric) worldwide.
