Luss is a scenic small village on the banks of Loch Lomond in Scotland. The village attracts many visitors from around the world, for its scenic streets and buildings. Most of the small houses in the village were built in the late 1800s to house workers employed at a slate quarry.

More interest in the village is due to it being the setting for the TV soap Take the High Road that ran from 1980 to 1993.

The image below is of the Luss Gift Shop at the pier with the beach leading north.

This was the Post Office, Paper Shop and General Store in the TV show Take the High Road that run from 1980 to 1993. The shop here was probably the most filmed place in the show, as it was where most people met, and most of the confrontations took place. There was no pub in the village, so the shop here was the main meeting place.

Moira Barton (Natalie J. Robb), the farmers wife in Emerdale, began her career here, and Joseph McFadden went on from here to play PC Joe Mason in Heatbeat. The store was run by Isabel Blair (Eileen McCallum).
