    Tour Luss, Loch Lomond

    Welcome to the quaint and historic village of Luss located on the western bank of Loch Lomond in the Trossachs region of Scotland.

    Tell me a little about a Tour of Luss, Loch Lomond.

    Luss ( pop 120) is conveniently situated on the main highway between Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands, about 33 miles north of Glasgow. Here can be found small houses with colourful gardens, a historic church, loch-side beach, pier offering panoramic views of Loch Lomond and Ben Lomond (mountain) plus shops and refreshment facilities.

    Tell me more about a Tour of Luss, Loch Lomond.

    The settlement at Luss may date back to the 6th century or even earlier. Early Christian missionary, St. Kessog visited in AD 510 and there is a Viking-era burial in the churchyard from the 9th century. The name is derived from the Gaelic for ‘plant’ or ‘herb’. More information:-

    Church

    Built 1875 by local Laird,Sir James Colquhoun in memory of his father who had drowned in the Loch in a boating accident.  The church roof is constructed in the shape of an upturned boat in recognition of the drowning event. This is the latest in a long line of Christian places of worship on the site. St. Kessog’s Church is a popular venue for weddings with technology for broadcasting services of all kind around the world via the internet.

    Clan Colquhoun

    The Colquhouns have a connection with Luss dating back to 1346 with the Clan Chief still residing in the area. The Clan Seat of Rossdhu Mansion is now home to a private golf club but can be viewed via boat from the Loch.

    Pilgrimage Centre

    Luss is a founding member of the Green Pilgrimage Network, a prestigious group of sites which includes the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem and the Golden Temple in Amritsar. The Pilgrimage Centre is close to and sponsored by the Church.

    Recreation

    Facilities include cycling, hiking, boat trips and swimming from the beach in summertime.

    Filming

    For many years Luss was. literally, a film set when used as a backdrop for a T.V. soap named ‘Take the High Road’.
