A settlement has probably existed at Luss since the 1300s when it is known there was a church dedicated to St Kessog, who brought Christianity from Ireland and founded a monastery on neighbouring Inchtavannach (Island of the Monks), in the 6th century. The village of Luss today owes much to the local landowners, the Colquhouns, who lived in nearby Rossdhu Castle. The village was rebuilt in the early 1800s to house workers for the nearby slate quarries.

Luss is within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, in an area of outstanding beauty, yet, under normal driving conditions, is only about 45 minutes drive from Glasgow City Centre and 35 minutes from Glasgow International Airport.

The world acclaimed Loch Lomond Golf Course, host to the Barclays Scottish Open, is just outside the village. The five star Cameron Hotel and Country Club is also close by, and there are numerous other golf courses in the vicinity.


The Strone was at one time owned by Luss Estates Company as was most of the residential properties in Luss. When the present owners bought it over 20 years ago it was simply a workers cottage and barn but they have painstakingly extended the living accommodation into the barn and created a deceptively large family home. During the 1980' and 90's it was used in the filming of Scottish Television's soap opera Take the High Road which it was immortalised as Sheila and Eddie Ramsay's cottage.

From the courtyard, the front door leads to a large welcoming reception hallway which also serves as a boot room and cloakroom. It has a band of windows overlooking the courtyard, a large store, and leads to the kitchen and drawing room.

The kitchen is at the very heart of The Strone. Refitted in 1995 with oak country style units at wall mounted and counter levels, it has a vaulted ceiling and is open plan with the dining room. From here there are doors to the sitting room and the inner hallway.

The sitting room occupies an extension which was added in 2005 with the approval of the National Park Authority. It has windows on three sides, French doors to the garden and oak flooring.

Off the inner hallway are a door to the courtyard, a family bathroom, two bedrooms and stairs to the first floor.

The family bathroom offers a white three piece suite with wc, pedestal wash hand basin and bath with mixer tap shower. Bedroom two has two fitted stores and a pretty window overlooking the rear garden. The master bedroom has two windows to the courtyard and two looking over the rear garden towards the hills beyond. It has a fitted store, study area and en suite facilities which were fitted in 2005. There is a vanity wash hand basin with storage below, shower and WC.

On the first floor is a further bedroom (bedroom 3) with two Velux windows looking towards the hills.

At the other end of the property, within the original part of the house and accessed off the main reception hallway is the drawing room. It is worthy of particular note as it is on a grander scale than the rest of the house. It was extended in the 1920s, to include an impressive five pane bay window and has a substantial wood burning stove, set into a stone surround,

Beyond the drawing room is the original front entrance hallway off which are a double bedroom with fitted wardrobe, and a large bathroom with WC, pedestal wash hand basin, bath with electric shower and linen store. This part of the house has its own access and has previously produced valuable letting income from the many tourists who visit Luss each year.


The Strone's gardens are superb. A stone chipped drive leads to a charming enclosed courtyard. To the rear of the house are a wooden garage, a greenhouse, decking and a summerhouse. The lawned drying area is well kept as are the kitchen garden and some splendid cottage garden borders.

To the side and front the lawns are manicured and in May and June the rhododendrons provide a blaze of colour, followed in autumn by hydrangeas.
