This is a wonderful walk which offers great views across Loch Katrine, Ben Lomond and beyond. The climb is steady going with several steeper sections where you need your hands to climb some rocky sections. From the car park, find the footpath that leads off from just beyond the information board and pay station. Turn right at the junction, following the sign for the Ben Venue mountain path. Then turn sharply left up a private road and keep following signs. A little over half a kilometer up the road, turn left onto a footpath that leads to the Achray Water Bridge. After crossing the bridge, turn right onto a broader track, all the while following well-marked footpaths. From the broader track, you’ll walk west for around 300m then take the path on your left into the forest. Continue on the main path all the way to the ridge, then turn right for the summit of Ben Venue, the path climbs and falls along the ridgeline.

An enjoyable walk. The first bit is pretty muddy but clears up once out of the trees.

wonderful hike but be sure to check the weather before for it can be hard to navigate in rain.
