Award winning holiday home situated in Scotlands most preserved Historic Village.
The location could not be better, smack bang in the middle of Luss Village. Luss is unlike any other Village in the Uk, preserved more or less as it was in the 19th century. Strict planning laws and high property prices have left this tiny Village almost unchanged. The perfect place for anyone visiting to fully relax and to take in the genuine Loch Lomond spirit.
We all want our guests to feel the 5 star status we have been awarded. From cleaning, maintenance and customer service we take great pride in providing the best for our guests. We love this house and its history but we never forget that its here for you to have a great vacation so use it to the full and have a great time.
The Strone is a 5 star graded, 4 bedroom holiday home which is situated in the village of Luss within the Loch Lomond national Park Scotland. Sleeping up to 10 guests your booking at The Strone comes complete with many quality features that you would not find with standard holiday lets. Complementary mountain bikes, canoe, welcome food pack and large bbq are some of the features included in your reservation. Our guests with childen love the large secure private garden complete with play house and swings.
A perfect example of new meets very old. This property began life as a crofter's cottage in 1850 and had an extension in original local stone built in the 1990s. Our extensive renovation of the property in 2013 included a full refit of all internal fittings and furniture.
Glasgow City and airport are a 40 minute drive from the property and Edinburgh airport can be reached in around 1 hour by car. The village itself has local services for food and dining with larger shops available in Balloch which can be reached by water bus or taxi.
We offer a range of in house services including concierge, housekeeping and catering. Our concierge can prepare the property to your specifications before your arrival including baby packs, flowers and a kitchen full of your requested food.

About this location
The Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park region
Luss is a pre-medieval village set in the stunning Loch Lomond conservation area with close access to both Edinburgh and Glasgow airports. Loch Lomond national park consists of 1,865 Sq/Km of natural countryside with the loch being the largest body of water within the UK.
The village is situated 45 km North of Glasgow and is within easy reach of many of the top Scottish tourist areas.
It does not take long for visitors to get caught up in the magical spirit of this unique village. Safe streets and friendly locals will let you fully relax and enjoy everything this exciting area has to offer.
Rather than simply viewing Scottish history our guests live in it, the local church even has an 11th century Viking gravestone with the oldest stone slabs dating back to 7th Century AD.
Sleepy Village not for you? No problem, we have exciting golf and spa packages, 124 km of cycling routes, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, historic tours, shopping tours, whiskey distillery tours and with our concierge service we can book just about any activity you could imagine.
Legend has it that the village takes its name from the French heraldic flower, the Fleur de Lys. According to the legend a local girl married a high ranking French officer in the 14th Century. She died in France and her body was returned to be buried by Loch Lomond. The Fleur de Lys strewn on her grave by her husband and are said to have taken root to flourish here ever since.
During the Empire years Luss was a popular destination for high society wishing to escape the busy streets of the City. In recent years the village has seen a resurgence in its traditional tourist industry. Not that the Village has changed, it is still the simple crofters village on the banks of Loch Lomond that it always was but then that's what makes it so special for everyone who visits now.
