My guess is that the name change is to make it more attractive to the tourist market. Tying it into Loch Lomond makes sense from that perspective.

  • Problems with both pro-indy and pro-union campaigns
    I am fairly confident it will be the case. As a percentage of the population how many do you think are actively debating the referendum? I would guess it is less than 5%. That isn’t to say there is lack of interest, just that people are largely focused on their day to day lives and will continue to be so post referendum.
  • Problems with both pro-indy and pro-union campaigns
    Not so concerned about that Robert. Whichever way the referendum goes rhere will be a small minority that will continue to either crow or make barbed comments but the majority of folk will get on with their lives in much the same way they are just now.
  • Problems with both pro-indy and pro-union campaigns
    I think there is a lot of truth in the claim that people are turning off in terms of online debate. There is also a case that some of the most vociferous ones online are actually detrimental to their campaign. There are certainly a few on here (from both sides) whose aggressive and sometimes odious approach could well have a negative net impact on number of votes cast for their side of the cause.

    However I also agree with Longshanks that there is still an active and also more rational campaign in the ‘real’ world.

  • Patricia Ferguson asks about those evacuated during Red Road Flats blow-down for Games ceremony
    The safety argument is clearly nonsense. If there were safety concerns these would have been highlighted when the idea was first proposed. More credit would have been due if someone just held up their hands and said ‘we simply misjudged this one’
  • Going well: Western and Northern Isles’ three days of serious talks in London on devolution
    I don’t understand this daft argument about refusing to take share or debt if Scotland doesn’t get a currency union. Do people really believe the pound is the only asset to be split? It is far more complex than that. If an independent Scotland refuses it’s share of public debt then there will be a lot more assets at stake than the pound.

  1. What was wrong with the ‘Colquhoun Arms’ name? – I thought that changing original pub / inn / hotel names to something considered more marketable was a peculiarly English affliction, but apparently not – unless the previous name was synthetic, which seems unlikely.

    • It will probably still be known locally as the Colquhoun Arms, however, I’ve been told that with the new opening they want to get a fresh start and previous people who ran the pub had let the place get a poor reputation.

      Now that Luss Estates have taken it back over and spent a hefty bit of money on it, a wee name change doesn’t seem to big a deal.

      Locally, the worry is how much a pint will cost!!!

  2. It is wonderful news to hear that this hotel will be re-opening and have a name that will attract tourists. The fact that there is a local history attached to the developers and that the blot on the landscape will be no more is just a joy. I love Luss and have missed the hotel facility over the years for a meal or coffee. We will definitely be visiting on our road from Strone to Glasgow. Good luck with this exciting addition to the West of Scotland.
