Glenluce Abbey

Founded around 1192, Glenluce is situated in a beautiful and peaceful valley. Visitors can see an exhibition of objects excavated on the site.

Highlights

  • The location – in the secluded valley of the Water of Luce, easily conveying a sense of the isolation and peaceful tranquillity that was so important to the Cistercian way of life.
  • The south transept – a well-preserved fragment of 13th-century Cistercian church architecture.
  • The chapter house – built around 1500 and still roofed and entire, with fine architectural features and a wonderful acoustic.
  • The museum of monastic life – a fascinating collection of artefacts found during clearance work.
