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.

    The spontaneous audiences also produce some characters. My favourite so far was a man claiming to be ‘the Oban Seagull Whisperer”. He turned up in the West Highland capital with the sole aim of persuading the call of nature of said seagulls to disrupt our session. I think the bag of chips in his hand were a bigger calling signal than any of his silent sounds.

    If people can’t see that is a joke then heaven help us!

    ‘Neither campaign’s reputations should be tarnished by the odd imbecilic act or tirade’

    Wholeheartedly agree. Overall I believe the campaign on the streets in villages, towns and cities has been good natured and carried out in a good spirit without excessive incident.

    Of course there are morons who neither have the brain cells or the common decency to allow a democratic process be carried out without resorting to physical or verbal abuse but then again there are some people who can barely let a day go by without resorting to physical and verbal abuse.

    Unless there is evidence that such unsavoury incidents are being deliberately orchestrated by official groups (and I am yet to see any) the then this sort of behaviour by supporters of both sides should be treated as what they are – the actions of idiots, not the actions of the majority.

    It would be interesting to get some sort of breakdown or how the debt has been accumulated. i.e. how much for roads, how much for public buildings, how much for weaponry etc etc and see how that is approximately split across the members of the UK.

    Clearly it wouldn’t be to the penny but a ballpark would be interesting for all parties. Not sure how readily available that information is.

  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.
