Nestled directly bellow the north end of the Erskine Bridge, on the banks of the Forth and Clyde Canal and cycle path and a 10 minute walk from the foot of the Old Kilpatrick Hills and the Auchantoshan Whisky Distillery, the Glen Lusset is a prime location for people wishing to explore Scotland and its culture. Cyclists and tourists alike heading for Bowling harbour, Balloch Country Park, Helensbourgh and Loch Lomond will often find the Glen Lusset as a perfect stop off to grab some lunch and refreshments.
The pub, formally know as The Grape, is named after the Lusset Glen, a small forrest area which faces onto the pub.
A 10 minute walk through the Lusset Glen will lead you directly to the foot of the Old Kilpatrick hills and a veer to the right will reveal our local whisky distillery Auchantoshan.
We have plans to open the rear of our pub onto the banks of the canal, providing scenic views throughout the year. We also plan to acquire our very own canal barge that will be available for hire. There is private car parking and a docking bay for canal barges directly outside the pub.
According to myth, the village of Old Kilpatrick (which means ‘the cell of Patrick’) was the birth pace of Saint Patrick. A memorial well, know as Saint Patricks Well, is located a ten minute walk west of the Glen Lusset. Directly outside the pub there also stands a war memorial which commemorates the residents of Old Kilpatrick who were killed or missing in World War I (49 names) and World War II (30 names).
