Luss

The pretty conservation village of Luss is situated almost 10 miles south of Tarbert on the western shore of Loch Lomond. It's a beautiful spot, with sandstone and slate cottages on the lochside. You may recognise it as the setting for the TV soap High Road.

A settlement has stood on this site since medieval times although much of the current village dates from the 18th and 19th centuries. The 19th-century parish church, with its beautiful Victorian stained-glass windows, is worth a visit.

The Luss Pilgrimage Centre, just next to the church, tells the story of St Kessog who, according to legend, came from Ireland and established a monastery on the island of Inchtavannach over 1,500 years ago.

Luss is also home to the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Visitor Centre.
