Glenluce (Gaelic: "Clachan Ghlinn Lus", pronounced|kɫ̪axan ɣliɲˈɫ̪us̪) is a village in the Scottish area of Dumfries and Galloway.

Located on the A75 road between Stranraer and Newton Stewart it is in the traditional county of Wigtownshire. Glenluce Abbey is nearby at gbmappingsmall|NX185588.

Its main centre runs along the main street, which until recently was relatively busy until the bypass was built. There is a post office, two general stores, and a town hall.

Each year around September, there is a vehicle show in the nearby Glenluce park where people show off anything from vintage tractors to the most recent cars.
