New Trophey for 2018

Alyson and Bruce who are both Canadians, lived in London between 2009/2014 where they both worked in St. Martin’s Parish in London. Alyson who was very highly placed in the Anglican Church travelled all over the world on behalf of the Church. They were Members of the Clan Colquhoun Society (UK) during the five years living in the UK, and faithfully attended the Gatherings, which coincided with the Luss (Loch Lomond) Highland Games. Alyson Barnett-Cowan has very kindly presented the Luss (Loch Lomond) Highland Gathering with a Shield in memory of her husband Bruce Barnett-Cowan. The Trophy will be presented to the winner of the Open Piping (March) Competition at the 2018 Gathering.

New Trophies for Luss Games

New Trophy Remembers Luss Gathering President

as Quarryman's Cup marks return of Piobaireachd Competition



A village policeman who spent more than thirty years supporting his local highland games is to be honoured with a new trophy bearing his name.

The Roderick Macleod Memorial Cup will be awarded at next month's Luss (Loch Lomond) Highland Gathering, the event of which he was Secretary, President and then Honorary President.

Born in Braes on the Isle of Skye, Mr Macleod first came to Luss as Village Policeman in 1949. The same year he joined the Games Committee in the pivotal role of Secretary. In 1974 he was elected Games President, a post he held until his retiral in 1985. He was then Honorary President for a number of years. The native Gaelic speaker was a passionate advocate of Highland culture, and also served as President of the Clydebank and District Highland Association for 25 years.


Fund Raising Ceilidh

Gathering Gears Up with Fund-Raising Ceilidh

As Ferries Get Set to Link Luss with Balmaha, Rowardennan, Balloch and Tarbet

One of Scotland's oldest highland games got a 'reel' boost after more than £1200 was raised at a pre-games ceilidh.

The Luss community turned out in force last month for the Luss (Loch Lomond) Highland Gathering Ceilidh, held for the first time at the village's award-winning Loch Lomond Arms Hotel. More than 80 took part in the celebratory, fund-raising evening which saw Games Treasurer Stuart McKeown and his Ceilidh Band entertain the crowd with sets of traditional – and not so traditional – tunes, taking many of the revellers back to the days of the Highlanders Institute in Glasgow.
