Many years ago we visited the village of Luss on the shores of Loch Lomond, Scotland, but then it was a little run down and not really a great tourist attraction. But how things have changed, from our visit in May 2916, we found that there is now a huge carpark outside of the village, we had just parked on the road in the village on our previous visit. The village shop has now become very trendy and sells specialised gifts. I think that all the cottages have been restored and the place has become picture postcard perfect. Which is not a bad thing, but I have lived in a picture post card village and its not all its cracked up to be, its like living in a goldfish bowel, but you do have it mostly to yourselves in winter, so there is a perk to living somewhere perfect.
You can catch a boat to some of the lovely islands on the loch, but we really only had time to explore the church and the ‘Viking Hogback Stone’ which was my last post, the church will be the next. We were on our way to catch a ferry to Isley and then on to Jura for the Whisky Festival, but we did have time to take a wander around the village, which is really lovely. The photo of the information board gives you a little history of the village and hopefully the photos will do the rest.
All round the village the hills in May were covered in bluebells, thousands of them.
