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!!!

    Can’t wait until it opens.

  • Baillie on latest figures for Royal Alexandra Hospital A&E waiting times
    The blame of this could be laid at multiple doors for repeated failure to protect and indeed advance the NHS services in this area.

    Tell me this, is there some way to get the geographical data from these figures as to who attended the RAH from North of the water and South? Wonder how that would change those figures if the Vale of Leven had an A & E again?

  • Baillie on latest A&E stats from Royal Alexandra Hospital
    As a recent patient in most of the hospitals in the West of Scotland, I think I am quite qualified to answer this from the punters point of view.

    First of all, anything that supports bringing A&E back to the Vale of Leven MUST be supported, by everyone in the political spectrum. There is a stretch of A82 between Milton and Bowling that makes this necessary. Roadworks or an accident in this stretch of road makes the whole of Dumbarton choke up and the place comes to a standstill. Ambulances can’t get through, let alone anything else. If it were you, would you want your loved one stuck on the A82 in the back of an ambulance with beleaguered but thank goodness we have them, Paramedics doing everything they can with their limited equipment? I was such a loved one recently and I thank my lucky stars there was no such delay in getting me over the river, there’s more than a good chance I would not be here typing this today.

    Another issue with this stretch of road is for getting ambulances on the way back from RAH to attend more emergencies, if the A82 is blocked up the other way as it takes no time to back up to Erskine – even something as simple as sunshine does that easily as half of Glasgow heads up the West Coast.

    Review of hospital staff in the 4 hospitals I have been in over the last couple of months – Superb. Everything to be proud about in the NHS. Doing a difficult job whilst being overstretched in every imaginable way. Every ward is full to choking. Patients are being sent home as soon as humanly possible and the beds filled as soon as they’ve been cleaned.

    There are a number of causes:

    Patients are being sent from hospitals all over Scotland to receive specialist care which they can’t get in hospitals closer to home.

    Patients being held in hospital because care packages are not being put in place quickly enough by agencies like Social Work etc.

    A&E departments not being available in more local hospitals.

    This list goes on…

    However, the answer to alleviate the RAH’s particular problem, is to re-open A&E services at the hospitals that now feed it. Its quite simply an overload problem. Too much of the population have to report there.

    I mean no disrespect to the fabulous RAH – Alexandria Paramedics and the RAH saved my life, but this is a service quite clearly at breaking point.

    BRING BACK A&E TO THE VALE!

  • Scotification pros and cons
    Quite frankly, I’d rather settle for the BBC being devolved completely.
  • 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

  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.
