Sir Robert de Colquhoun, supposed by Mr Fraser, the family historian, to be fifth in descent from the first Humphry, and son of a Humphry, the fourth of Colquhoun, in the reign of David Bruce, married in or previous to the year 1368 the dau ghter and sole heiress (known in the family tradition as "The Fair Maid of Luss ") of Godfry de Luss, lord of Luss, head or chief of an ancient family of that name, and the sixth in a direct male line from Malduin, dean of Lennox, who, in the beginning of the thirteenth century, received from Alwyn, second Earl of L ennox, a charter of the lands of Luss. The Luss territories lie in the mountain ous but beautiful and picturesque district on the margin of Loch Lommond, Sir R obert was designed "dominus de Colquhoun and de Luss," in a charter dated in 1368; since which time the family have borne the designation of Colquhoun of Colq uhoun and Luss.

He had four sons, namely - Sir Humphry, his heir; Robert, first of the family of Camstraddan, from whom several other families of the name of Colquhoun in Dumbartonshire are descended; Robert mentioned in the Camstradden charter as "frater junior"; and Patrick who is mentioned in a charter from his brother Sir Humphry to his other brother Robert.
About 1368, Sir Robert Colquhoun of that Ilk married the heiress of Luss and the clan have since that time been known as "of Luss". Sir Robert supported Bruce and fought at Bannockburn. The seat of the clan remains to this day, Rossdhu House, in Luss, on the West Shore of Loch Lomond.
