OLD LUCE (or Glenluce) is a parish, in
Wigtownshire poor combination and Stran-
raer small debt court district, about 12
miles long by a width varying from 3£ to
7£, and is bounded on the north by Inch
and New Luce, north-east by Drumpail
Burn, which separates it from Kirkcowan,
east by Mochrum and south by Luce Bay.
Glenluce is a village and burgh of barony
on the banks of the river Luce, and on the
road from Newton Stewart to Stranraer, at
the head of Luce Bay, which here forms a
tolerably good harbour for small vessels;
it is 19 miles east from Portpatrick, 18
west from Wigtown, 16 south-west from
Newton Stewart and 10 east-by-south from
Stranraer. The Portpatrick and Wigtown-
shire joint line runs through the town,
and is joined by the Girvan line at Dun-
ragit station, which is in the parish. The
principal hotels are the " Commercial "
and the " King's Arms." About a mile
to the north of the church, and further
up the vale from which the village takes
its name, are the ruins of Luce Abbey,
founded by Rolland, Lord of Galloway, in
1190, for monks of the Cistercian order;
the ruins at present cover about an acre
and a half, but the only part now re-
maining entire is the Chapter house, a
small apartment on the east side of the
cloisters, with a central shaft, about 14
feet high, from which spring eight arches
supporting the roof : tradition reports that
Michael Scott, the wizard, was once abbot
here : many curiosities, together with
several skeletons in an upright position,
have been found on the site : in the collec-
tions of the Ayrshire and Galloway Archaeo-
logical Association, vol. v. a full descrip-
tion is given of the abbey, with plans.
