My husband and I went yesterday and we loved it! This was our second munro. We parked at the Rowardennan Car Park. Its £3 for a whole day (make sure you have change on you). We got there at around 1PM and the car park...More
We started at Rowardennan after a ferry ride from the Tarbet Hotel pier. We walked up the Ptarmigan route and then down the Main trail. It was a very rigorous climb up and a beautiful trail, but I wouldn't want to walk down it for...More
Climbed Ben Lomond via Ptarmigan route in August. It was cloudy/rainy/misty the day I went (it is Scotland, so it is probably like this most of the time) but still incredibly beautiful. Probably one of my favourite hikes ever. If you reach the top, however,...More
My self and a couple of friends, picked the wrong day weather wised to do Ben Lomond, although from the base level it did not seem to bad, however after about 500 feet up the visibility was down to about 10 metres all the way...More
Fantastic climb with the family...the views at the top were amazing and well worth the hard work. Clouds can cover quickly but if you wait, they clear just a quickly. Wear a sleeve for the summit as it gets chilly....trainers are fine to wear.
Absoutely brilliant hike with hubby yesterday up Ben Lomond. It was great fun, a little steep at times but worth it! Took us 4 hours all in to get up and back down. Beautiful views and met lots of lovely people who were also climbing....More
A good introductory hill in Scotland with excellent views over Loch Lomond and the surrounding hills. On a good day can see as far north as the hills of Gen Coe and the ancient capital of Stirling to the east. Be aware that this needs...More

This is a fantastic walk... It took us 2hrs 50 miss to reach the summit - we're not regular walkers so probably quite a slow pace in that regard. Worth every step. We set off at 7.40am to get going and that was a good...More
I think, May, June, September might be the best months. Ben Lomond is considered to be an 'easy' mountain, so you don't need special mountaineering skills to climb it. The foot - path is great, you won't have any problems... More
I think, May, June, September might be the best months. Ben Lomond is considered to be an 'easy' mountain, so you don't need special mountaineering skills to climb it. The foot - path is great, you won't have any problems. For preparation I would recommend you some smaller climbs. Nevertheless it's a mountain, be prepared for changing weather - conditions, bring enough water and warmer layers, be prepared for rain......and enjoy the view :-)
