Nith Inshore Rescue
Nith Inshore Rescue is an independent lifeboat serving the Dumfries area. We are based in Glencaple, 5 miles south of Dumfries in south-west Scotland, on the estuary of the River Nith close to where it joins the Solway Firth.
We are a Registered Charity (number SC022223), one of many independent lifeboats around the coast of Britain who are not part of the RNLI.
All lifeboats, whether RNLI or independent, come under the control of the Coastguard and we all carry out the same front-line search and rescue duties.
