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.

  • Salmond departure only hope for healing in Scotland – successor cannot be Sturgeon
    The scenes in Glasgow last night are shameful, hugely regrettable, and a reminder that there is an ugly vein of bigotry amongst a relatively small number of people predominantly in Glasgow.

    However it is not the face of the No vote as has been said on many Facebook posts (or words to that effect). Over two million people voted no, a few hundred have behaved like idiotic morons. Christ more people in my small village voted No (and Yes) than that.

    Painting it as the face of the no vote is an insult to half the population of the country and can only inflame resentment amongst people who simply exercised their democratic right.

    As for Graham’s remark that all no voters are selfish and don’t care about the poor. Well all that does is highlight what a petty person you are Graham. What a relief that Jackie Baillie beat you back in 2007. She isn’t perfect but she is head and zhoulders above you in terms of trying to represent people equally.

    Hopefully last night was an isolated incident with those responsible properly dealt with by the authorities. Hopefully we see a rapid decrease in crowing over the result by the no voters and hopefully we see an equally rapid decrease in divisive sweeping insults by Yes voters. Time to grow up and move on.

    Didn’t expect that I must admit. Bad news for the SNP.
  • Scottish independence referendum: declaration times
    I agree John. That is what I mean by ‘we can’t ignore’ though. I have always said that devo max would have won the referendum comfortably. If that, or something approaching it, can be delivered then it would appease a sizable share of the Yes vote – however if it isn’t it will strengthen a future yes movement.
  • Scottish independence referendum: declaration times
    Well you have to take those not eligible to vote out of the population figures. It was a very high turn out with a 45% vote for Yes. You can argue around the edges about the amount for independence and amount for material change however I don’t think you can dismiss it as not being a strong voice.
  • Scottish independence referendum: declaration times
    Lay members on a an advisory committee would not be a bad idea at all but we have to remember that lay members have no elected mandate for policy (and nor should they be put in a position where they have any, they haven’t put themselves forward for that role). We elect politicians, for better or worse, to make these decisions on our behalf.

    It wouldn’t be appropriate to exclude politicians from an exercise to determine the powers to be devolved.

    As for potential candidates it obviously has to be cross party. I would nominate, amongst others, Anas Sawar from Labour, John Swinney from the SNP, probably Ruth Davidson or Annabel Goldie…not so sure about the Lib Dems. I wouldn’t be adverse to someone like Charles Kennedy or Tavish Scott. However I acknowledge I have not given it much thought.

  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.
