On the western side of Loch Lomond sits Inchconnachan Island. Uninhabited for the last 20 years, the island has been owned by the local Colquhoun family since the 14th century and is now managed by the Luss Estates.
The Island has one building which is a derelict Colonial-style timber bungalow dating from the 1920s. The bungalow was latterly the holiday home of the Countess of Arran, daughter of Iain Colquhoun and the 29th Laird of Luss. The same Countess who reached a top speed of 102mph in a powerboat on Lake Windemere in 1980. She became the first woman ever to reach a speed of more than a hundred miles an hour on the water.
The island has planning permission from the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority for a four-bedroom lodge, a one-bedroom boat house and a pier. Trace Studio was commissioned to create a vision of what the future property may look like by working partnership with Savills Estate Agents and Architects Simpson & Brown.
