Luss Heritage Trail

This easy walking trail takes in the model village of Luss, with its pretty stone cottages and pier on Loch Lomond as well as riverside and woodland sections.


Very good paths with some steps but mainly level.

Public Transport

Start from the main car park in Luss, where there is a charge except in winter. Luss was orginally known as Clachan Dhu, the dark village, due to its position in the shadow of the hills. However approximately 1,500 years ago St Kessog brought Christianity to the area, he was martyred and his body embalmed in sweet herbs. Local legend suggests that the herbs grew and covered his grave and gave the village its new name derived from the Gaelic word lus meaning herb. Head away from the lochside to pass the shop at the opposite end of the car park to the toilets and National Park information centre. Turn left onto the main road through the village but almost immediately turn right towards the primary school, following the pathway straight up the slope. Climb the steps and head across the footbridge over the A82. The pathway emerges next to a large house, keep straight on along a short section of path and then head left following a wooden signpost for the Quarry Walk.
