Who we are

The Colquhoun motto being 'SI JE PUIS' translates as IF I CAN.

The name of Colquhoun is taken from an area of land around Kilpatrick which is on the north side of the River Clyde, to the west of Glasgow. These lands were granted to Humphrey of Kilpatrick by Malcolm, Earl of Lennox, in the time of Alexander II. In the 14th century, Sir Robert Kilpatrick married the Fair Maid of Luss, daughter of the Laird of Luss, and it is since then the chief of the Colquhouns has been known as Colquhoun of Colquhoun and Luss.

 

Where we are

The main base for the Clan Colquhoun is at Luss on the west side of Loch Lomond. Luss is just off the A82 between Alexandria and Tarbet and has two entrances. The southern entrance is through a wooded area alongside the Loch. The northern entrance is more direct to the (pay and display) car park.
