This website has been created by Ruthwell and Clarencefield Community Council and supported by grant funding from Dumfries & Galloway Council to provide information about our area for residents and visitors.

The Ruthwell and Clarencefield area lies about 8 miles east of Dumfries, between the A75 and the Solway.

The main centres are the villages of Ruthwell and Clarencefield, and the smaller settlement of Ruthwell Station. It is a busy and thriving rural community, which has seen extensive new house building in recent years.
