One of the best views in the country is around 30 miles outside of Glasgow in the small village if Luss on the banks of Loch Lomond. Once used for the Scottish soap 'Take the High Road' this village is tranquil yet bustling with visitors. The small village shop sells traditions Scottish souvenirs and also traditions scottish confectionary such as tablet. The village does tours of the Loch on small boats at regular times throughout the day. There is a church on site rich in architecture, and the proprieters of the church are always willing to speak about the history if you are interested.

There is plenty of parking on site and is regularly frequented by bus loads of tour groups also wanting to see one of the best views in Scotland.

There is a small pebble beach on the Loch always perfect if its a nice day and you want to pack a picnic. There is also a pier which is always a perfect view point for Ben Lomond on the opposite side of the loch and its also the perfect spot for unimpeded photos of Loch Lomond and its surrounding islands.

The pier at Luss is also a hotspot in the summer for teenagers to jump off - definitly not recommended - to cool off. It is a type of tradition in Scotland.

On the way to Luss you also pass the small town of Balloch which is home to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park - definitely worth a visit and it is very easy to do both in the one day both sites are connected by a bus service which stops at the supermarket opposite Balloch Country Park.
