The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel is a short walk south of the Car Park, at the top of Pier Road. This Hotel was built as a Coaching Inn during the 1600s. The Hotel was closed for some time before being modernized in 2012. The Hotel website gives information on the Area Activities.

Pier Road is the Main Street in the Village with the popular Village Rest Cafe / Diner with outdoor seating, War Memorial, and Cottages from the late 1800s, built for Workers at a Slate Quarry.

These Cottages and the Gift Shop were used in the TV Series - Take the High Road that ran from 1980 to 1993.

At the bottom of Pier Road is the main Pier, and a smaller Pier 200 yards south, both used for Boat Trips on Loch Lomond.

The small Clan Colquhoun Museum is situated by the small Pier, this seems to be closed just now.

The Gift Shop at the Pier was the Post Office, Paper Shop and General Store in the TV show Take the High Road. 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 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).

The Beach at the north side of the Pier leads to The Lodge on Loch Lomond Hotel with the Restaurant having Loch views.

On Church Road is the Coach House Cafe.

Luss Church is a short walk past the Coach House, built in 1875 as a Church of Scotland, now attracting about 750,000 visitors per year.
