The Old Toll Bar Café in Gretna

Situated right on the Scottish border between Scotland and England, sits the historic black and white building of the Old Toll Bar; small in size but huge in character. Just seconds across the border and officially the First and Last House in Scotland, the Old Toll Bar Café is a fantastic stop-off for a quick break and refreshing drink before carrying on your journey. A truly remarkable addition to your Scottish cycling adventure and a great opportunity to pose next to the ‘Welcome to Scotland’ sign too.
