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.

    No they don’t Malcolm. Community Councillors can respond to an application as an individual and the community council can respond as a group however the ultimate decision lies with the planning officer for less material applications and the elected members on the planning committee for more material ones.

    I understand where you’re coming from although I think you over estimate how much of a say councillors really have. They have a limited budget to play with once mandatory services are financed.

    I can’t believe that when there is so much of significance to be debated people are still banging on about a small number of English outlets or taxi drivers not accepting Scottish pound notes. I have travelled up and down to England countless times over the past twenty years and yes I have had a Scottish note knocked back on a very small number of occasions. All bar two occasions I have managed, pretty easily, to persuade the person they can take the note. Whilst I accept some others may have had more difficulty it is hardly a major hardship and pretty easy to avoid.

    I have also had problems getting Northern Irish notes accepted in Scotland. In fact I have had more trouble using Northern Irish money in Scotland than I have Scottish money in England.

    So are Scottish businesses and taxi drivers not treating the Northern Irish equally?

    Do you know how I get round it? I make sure I don’t take NI notes back to Scotland or if I do it is a very small amount and then I go to a cash point in Scotland and get some money out (or I take Scottish notes with me so I have some when I get back). Disaster avoided!

    Isn’t Scotland’s savings on trident what the White Paper refers to as savings from reducing defence and security spending? If so the White Paper has already committed those savings to eight bullet pointed areas of commitment.

    If I shop in Iceland instead of Morrisons and save £15 a week I can either buy 4 pints of beer, a DVD or maybe a Sky TV subscription – I can’t buy all three!

  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.
