Welcome to Old Luce, an enchanting rural parish in Wigtownshire, Dumfries and Galloway nestled in South-west Scotland. The area is known for its unspoilt natural beauty and is the perfect place to unwind from the pressures of modern life. With hills to one side and the seaside on the other Old Luce boasts an enviable range of outdoor activities and more tranquil pursuits.

The area has some of the best fishing rivers to be found anywhere in Britain with salmon and some sea trout fishing available in the Water of Luce which flows by the village. For those with an interest in history, Glenluce Abbey, which is managed by Historic Scotland, is close by. The main landmark at the edge of the village is the former railway viaduct, an impressive 8-arch structure taking the former Dumfries to Stranraer railway over the road and Water of Luce. This friendly community very much looks forward to welcoming you to Old Luce soon!
