Fantastic day out with great views from the summit. Fairly steady walk with steep sections from the off but a flatish section about half way up for a breather. We took our dogs and there was plenty of canine company for them to enjoy. The...More

My friend climbed Ben Lomond last year and loved it. Seeing the photos he took made me want to climb it as well. I work at a hotel at Lang bank and I can see Ben Lomond in the distance and always wanted to climb...More

We climbed up Ben Lomond via the Ptarmigan route in increasingly worsening conditions, but it was a good climb up and were rewarded at the top by spectacular fleeting glimpses of Loch Lomond. I would not recommend trying to descend via the Ptarmigan route as...More

What an amazing view from the summit! An achievable walk but tough in some places. We went on a beautiful day and it was well worth the walk to the top! Not too busy and everyone we met enroute was very friendly. Still very snowy...More

If you enjoy climbing hills but are perhaps no too adventurous, this is the Munro for you. Clear path from the car park at Rowerdennan and great views from the summit. A more rugged route to the top passes over the Ptarmigan ridge but even...More
