Lincluden Abbey, Dumfries
Ancient monument under the care of Historic Scotland.
On the northern outskirts of the town off the A76.

Founded as a Benedictine nunnery in the last half of the 12th century, by Uchtred, son of Fergus, Lord of Galloway, this precious gem of medieval architecture stands close to the confluence of the rivers Nith and Cluden. Burns would often walk here. This can still be followed today.
