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.

    Where are the direct criticisms of officers?

    The standards commission takes those a lot more seriously than criticisms of councillors. Criticism of councillors tends to be considered largely as fairly typical political point scoring rather than a matter for investigation.

    ”Leaking information’ as a breach very much depends on provisions in legislation on what constitutes confidential and exempt information. Just because The Council hasn’t rleased it doesn’t make Cllr Breslin publishing it or making it available a definite breach of the code.

    However, at the risk of sounding like Simon, if you are so convinced there has been a breach of the code then why not go ahead and report it? I note that the council’s chief executive has not done that yet, maybe she doesn’t feel there is grounds for a complaint. However you seem very sure so instead of rattling cages on a forum with no jurisdiction why not take it to the body that has that jurisdiction?

    I take your point about the permission not being rescinded making you feel it pointless pursuing the case. I know as well as anyone, and possibly better then most, how frustrating pursuing this sort of thing can be. I just recommend doing it if possible, if only to make things different in future.
  • Audit Scotland now conducting third consecutive investigation of Argyll & Bute Council
    I would echo that Simon. It was my post in Malcolm’s video. I haven’t and wont offer an opinion on Malcolm’s issue for the same reason as you, that being that I haven’t investigated the issue in detail.

    However speaking more generally I would always encourage someone who feels a council has behaved inappropriately to take their complaint to the correct body.

    If, for arguments sake, Malcolm’s story stacks up in the manner he has presented it, then he has been poorly treate. Agreeing or disagreeing with him should have nothing to do with political viewpoints or any possible personal opinions on the personality. We can’t all like each other but we all deserve fair treatment by our council.

  • The black arts of political spin betray SNP fears in Argyll & Bute
    And Bill Walker claimed just shy of £7,000 to pay for a hotel less than 30 miles from his home because he liked to have a drink and therefore couldn’t drive home!

    Guilty people in every party. The sooner people accept that and start focusing on how to put things right rather than playing holier than thou about their own party the better.

  • Russell offers to meet Council administration to discuss Castle Toward
    A councillor doesn’t have to declare an interest when meeting with a community group. A councillor is elected to represent the community,

    As for sharing emails none were confidential, all would be made available via FOI.

    Criticising officers specifically in public could be a breach but I thought most of Cllr Breslin’s criticisms were of Cllr Walsh? Have I missed something?

  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.
