So much to see and do in Glenluce

The Abbey was founded circa 1192 and is situated about two miles from the village in a tranquil valley of the Water of Luce.

The south transept is a well-preserved example of 13th-century Cistercian church architecture whilst the chapter house was built around 1500 and is still roofed and entire. Visitors can see fine architectural features and the Chapter House also boasts excellent acoustics.

Visitors to the Abbey, which is managed by Historic Scotland, can see an exhibition of objects excavated on the site.
