Comment posted Loch Lomond Arms Hotel opens the high road to Luss in July by Crazy She-Bat.

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!!!

  • Luss really does give a toss
    Raining pancakes in Luss tomorrow. I’m going out with a large net lol Good luck to all taking part.
  • Jim Murphy under pressure to confirm intentions for East Renfrewshire
    I have 3 comments to make here. Firstly, as an ex-Rangers supporter who lost her affection with the club long ago, I can tell you that there are some genuine fans of football attending Old Firm games and a good portion of Glasgow’s Finest Scumbags there for no other reason than to wind the opposing teams supporters up and hope for a fight. They most definitely should have their access to alcohol during the game cut off. They do a fine enough job shaming everyone within spitting distance of Glasgow as it is. At least lets hope they can sober up a bit whilst they are on TV.

    Point 2. Jim “Two Cans” Murphy. I would not waste my eggs on a man as greasy as cheap sausage fae Farmfoods. You’ll enjoy them much more at home people, especially if this hairdyed bampot gets into power – anywhere. Why? You think we’re skint noo? Wait til Jim the closet Tory gets his mits on the purse strings! I for one hope wee Nicola skelps his bahookie. No wait, after 50 shades of Grey, HE might like that.

    Thirdly… Its good to be back. Thanks all for the best wishes! x

  • Welcome to Argyll’s Loch Litter-side and to Loch Litter and the Tossers National Park
    Don’t be blaming the kids. I can assure you that in the nearest school, the children do litter patrols around their school everyday and get quite annoyed at the rubbish thrown in the school by passing tourists and lager louts.

    There is no reason that bins cannot be placed in these lay-bys and added to the council’s bin collection for the park – its done virtually everyday in Luss, so a couple more will only add a few minutes to the schedule.

    I’m quite sure the £325,000 Gordon Brown got for 2 days of speeches made it bearable for him too.

  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.

  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.
