Bit icy along the path yesterday but views and weather were spectacular.
Walk itself is full of big steps at the start but then eases to a normal hill walk.
Definitely take your camera, definitely go to the wee coffee shop across from the car park.

Ptarmigan ridge is the best route to take both up and down if you like a challenge. The tourist route up is exactly that, full of foot traffic and really quite boring except for the views

great walk with lovely views..very icy in parts but I would imagine it would be quite muddy boggy if the weather was warmer..had to lift my two dogs over the stile and down some drops on the way back down the hill..all in all good walk

A nice amble in the woods. Some great scenic views but didn’t find Robs cave!

Route is closed at one side due to chemical treatment by the forestry commission. Go up the right hand path and you can still do a decent hike out and back.

buitifull vewes and gets yer blood pumping would do it again deffo

A great wee climb for first time hill walkers and children. I did this with my two kids, 10 and 7, who enjoyed the experience. Quite muddy and slippy at places so I recommend proper footwear. A good scramble at the top. Views are awesome!

Just completed this on Saturday. Loved it .. well worth a go ..

A great climb with beautiful views on the way up. Lots of sheep to keep you company if hiking alone. The weather is very changeable as you climb higher. I climbed Ben Lomond on a beautiful May day however the visibility reduced quite considerably on the way up and all I could see was the fog around me. The mountain path climb was quite difficult but the jog back down was awesome.

Hardest hike I've ever done but completely worth it for the incredible views. Took us probably about five hours and we were exhausted by the end. But I cannot stress how incredible the views were

Views are just stunning.

Nice view but not an easy hiking. Weather changing so fast so better be ready.

All I can say is awesome!!! 5-6 hours top to peak and back. Ben Lomond is the southern most Munro (peak over 3000ft) and it’s all downhill from the top of Ben Lomond to land’s end in southern England. I took about 80 photos as view after view just kept getting better and better! Views of Loch Lomond one way...into the highlands and rolling hills the other way...and roaming sheep will photo bomb you!! :) And amazingly you’ll find them grazing 100m from the peak you just busted your butt hiking up! ;) Check the weather forecast and definitely pick a sunny day to go. Clouds and rain can quickly envelope the peak robbing your efforts of the payoff views...and making it a miserable, slow and slippery hike downhill on the quartz and granite rocky path. Great exercise! Calves will ache the next morning!! But wow. What a great hike! A must do! And awesome training if you’re thinking of attempting Ben Nevis.

We booked the Rob Roy way with Hillwalk Tours, so we had B&Bs booked along the way and also had luggage transport, so we only needed to bring our daypacks. We did it in 6 days (18, 15, 26, 24, 16, 16km) and only skipped one short part that's all along a narrow main road.
Absolutely loved the landscapes and the scenery! the people all along the way we're exceptionally friendly and nice. The track is not very well marked most of the way (it follows the cycle route 7 for long parts which is very well signposted, but the parts that differed often weren't marked at all especially between Drymen and Ardeonaig. From Acharn on it was well marked.)

We had an absolutely fantastic stay, the walk wasn't to hard, but still challenging enough for semi fit people to be a good balance.

Especially the stretch from Acharn to Aberfeldy is absolutely stunning - especially the last leg when you go by so many beautiful waterfalls!

Strongly suggest to bring a change of shoes as there's some part over a moor, that will soak even the best shoes completely in bad weather, unless it's wellies...

Really enjoying this route. It’s becoming more popular too. Mainly following National cycling route 7 means there is a little too much tarmac but the stretches which go high above the lochs afford the best views. So go high at every opportunity. The stretch between Ardtalnaig and Aberfeldy is one of the most scenic but all of the stages have there own high point. You won’t be disappointed
