The Loch Lomondside village of Luss is in the running to be named the prettiest town or village in Scotland in an online vote.
Hidden Scotland has whittled hundreds of nominations from the public down to a shortlist of 35 finalists – and Luss is one of three West Highland communities on the list, alongside Oban and Tobermory.
The picturesque village attracts thousands of visitors every year as people come to enjoy its narrow streets, traditional sandstone cottages – many with beautiful floral displays outside – and its stunning setting on the banks of Loch Lomond.
