Ben Lomond - Description

Test Ben Lomond is only about 25 miles from Glasgow so attracts a lot of walkers, ranging from people out for a stroll to serious mountaineers. On a summers day you will struggle to find a place to park and equally probably struggle to find a place of your own on the mountain! A lot of the crowds can be avoided by taking the Ptarmigan ridge route to the summit. This is Ben Lomondís shoulder and offers a much more challenging route. The views that can be obtained down Loch Lomond from the summit itself are to be admired and if you get the weather the loch will most definitely be buzzing with activity which is always nice to see. Ben Lomond itself is typical of a southern highland hill with grassy lower slopes rising to a rocky craggy top for the last 100m or so.

Parking is available in Rowerdennan right at the start of the climb but as mentioned you need to get there early!

Climbed Ben Lomond via the Ptarmigan ridge on several occasions now, undoubtedly the best route. The views down Loch Lomond for the entire length is superb. Need to watch the car park at Rowerdennan though, in summer this place can get ridiculously busy !
