Drove along the scenic coast to Glenluce; arrived at the abbey only to find it closed in winter. Tbh I'm not sure I'd have paid the £4.50 entrance fee anyway as it's only a small abbey and not sure it would've taken long to walk...More

There is little to see apart from the ruins, the scenery around the area is excellent. Theee are no facilities for very young children at all. There are beaches close by, if you go down to the Wigtowshire Golf club, just down the path there...More

The abbey is historically interesting and it is worth getting the lit on it. It stands in a beautiful setting, with trails leading from it.

It was a beautiful day when we arrived at the Abbey - which was closed for the Winter. This did not prevent me from getting some superb photographs - it's different in every season. This Abbey may not be as complete as some of it's...More

This is a great little Abby with fantastic choir room and great examples of water ducts. Really beautiful setting for a weeding but they have stopped that service recently. A little of the beaten track but well worth a visit. No catering on site but...More

We visited on a lovely sunny day and much preferred this to Sweetheart Abbey. It is a slightly larger site and takes longer to get round. Some of the Abbey was fenced off for restoration work but it wasn't too much of a problem. The...More

We hadn't planned on visiting Glenluce Abbey and came across it by accident. The ticket office wasn't manned so it was free to look around the grounds which were really interesting. The chapter house wasn't open but we could see the fantastic vaulted ceiling through...More

We visited at a time when there was 'no charge' as the office was un-manned because of a staff shortage. We would have been willing to make a contribution via an honesty box. A pity we could not get access to the Chapter House. The...More

visited this abbey while in the area - it is similar to many other ruined abbeys but still worth a visit, the lady at reception was very nice and advised us on other places to visit the acoustics in the chapel are interesting and it...More

Due to staffing issues, the Chapter House and Museum weren't open - but access to the site was free. From the road, it looks like there are a couple of bits of tower and wall left, with not much else. It's only once you walk...More
