Exploring the area

Luss on the western shores of Loch Lomond has a spellbinding history and is renown as the “must visit destination” when visiting the world-famous Loch Lomond and Trossachs region.

Scotland’s first National Park covers an area of 720 sq. miles and is full of stunning scenery and jaw dropping landscapes. Luss was immortalised in the television series Take the High Road. The village was originally known as Clachan Dhu and there are two similar romantic stories about how Luss received its name.  Around 500AD, an Irish missionary St Kessog, arrived introducing Christianity to the area. St Kessog’s body was embalmed with herbs which grew around his grave and the village is said to have been later renamed Luss, taken from the Gaelic name for the herb that grew there.  Legend also has it that the village takes its name from an adaptation of the French for the heraldic flower, the iris, or Fleur de Lys. According to the legend a local girl married a high-ranking French officer in the 14th Century. She died in France but her body was returned to be buried by Loch Lomond; Fleur de Lys strewn on her grave by her husband and grown here ever since.

Both stories are as intriguing as the village itself being a conservation village and subject to very strict planning and regulations, which helps to preserve the village in its original layout. To the south of the centre of the village is Luss Church, built by the Colquhouns in 1875 with a fascinating graveyard and the church interior is especially worth exploring.
