Luss village viewed from pier.

This evening, I am reporting on the quaint and historic lochside village of Luss which is located just off the main highway between Glasgow and the Scottish Highlands, about 33 miles north of Glasgow. Here can be found small houses with colourful gardens, a historic church, loch-side beach, pier offering panoramic views of Loch Lomond  and Ben Lomond (mountain) plus shops and refreshment facilities.
