This is the Mountain Path to Ben Lomond. 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, so come prepared.

HikingGreat!

First Munro. Absolutely loved it. Found it pretty tough in parts but totally worth it. Definitely take the tourist path up if you are not experienced as the other route is very demanding. Remember to bring enough water and £3 for the car park.

Pretty steep from start to finish. Only a couple of slightly more level sections to catch your breath. Awesome climb

HikingGreat!

Great walk up, stunning views! Be careful with parking, if your not parked in a car park you will find a parking ticket on your car.

Bird WatchingGreat!No shade

My first Munro. Thoroughly enjoyed the hike. It was quite surprised how busy it was. I recommend going early. I started at 9am, there was quite a lot of spaces in the car park on arrival. Passed a lot of people on the way back down and there wasn’t a space to be had in the car park on my return.

Great day climbing Ben Lomond. Be sure to go right at the car park as we went left by accident and ended up doing a 3k 'warm up' around the NTS boundary! Well maintained path. The first part through the woodland seems the hardest, perhaps because it was very humid in there when we visited. Much better getting the fresh air on the open hill!

police stopped us and didn't allow us to complete the trail. So went round the other side and hiked it old school!

Completed Sat 26/10. Took around 5hrs but slowed down due to weather (hail, rain & snow). Can be steep at times and rough under foot, especially on the way down. Snow capped at the top with weather changing quickly.

Steep incline, but well worth it for the gorgeous view at the top. We took Ptarmigan on the way back down. (A bit more technical with narrower paths that weren't always as well cleared, but definitely glad we chose it for the scenery. Would recommend if you prefer a circle trail vs. an out and back.)

Tough on the old knees on the way down, my party of myself, 12 year old and 8 and 6 managed to make it to the top, best on a dry clear day, be prepared for changes in weather. Very doable in the right conditions
