January 1st 2019, the Loch is calm and the sun is shining. What a way to start the year with a refreshing walk around Luss village. Well, that’s what 45 people enjoyed after their New Year celebrations at The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel, the largest number we’ had to date.

Two walks were conducted by historic guide, Archie Waters, visiting some of the main attractions at Luss. The pictures below show some of the group walking along the beech, with Ben Lomond (Beacon Hill) in the background and the other the Viking Hogg Backed Stone in the graveyard. 

This part of Scotland has a fantastic historical heritage featuring well known  icons such as Saint Kessog, Robert the Bruce and Rob Roy. The groups enjoyed hearing about them all but also found the less likely heroes – the Loch Lomond Wallabies – just as intriguing.

A very enjoyable start to the year!
