9/26.- Excursions from Glasgow. Loch Lomond, Luss


Nice wee town on the banks of Loch Lomond. Story has it that Luss got its name from the French "Fleur de Lys". Apparently a local girl married a French officer in the 14th century and subsequently moved to France. After her death, her body was sent back for burial by Loch Lomond, and the Fleur de Lys scattered on her grave by her French husband are supposed to have taken root and grown. Nice wee story for a nice wee town.

The present day village of Luss was rebuilt in the early 1800's by the Colquhouns who lived close by in Rossdhu Castle.
