Roucan Loch Crematorium

The serene setting of Roucan Loch Crematorium and Woodland Burial is only 3 miles from Dumfries and and 8 miles from the M74, overlooking tranquil waters, where abundant wildlife, calming birdsong and panoramic views of the rolling Nithsdale landscape and offers the ideal location for contemplation.

The award winning crematorium has been carefully designed in a Scandanavian style to blend in with the natural surroundings and included a quiet room for the privacy of immediate family.  The view from our chapel window overlooks the peaceful loch, pine forest and water cascade.  To compliment the main building "Svalbard" our waiting area, is bright and airy and contains tea & coffee facilities and toilets.
