just beautiful

had a nice sunny day. took the dog.
the walk was great and the views from the top were fantastic. make sure you take a waterproof because the weather can be very changeable at the top. all in all a fun walk and one very tired dog.

Very nice wieves.

Lovely view on good weather.

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

Fantastic hike, agree with prior comments that locating the trail in poor visibility is tough.

Fabulous walk and views

This is a relatively easy and pleasant walk that includes open views and short wooded areas. The pathway is predominately tarmac although you can choose to walk on short grass at many parts. It is used for walking, running and cycling. Most users are spatially aware and considerate but it can be busy on dry weekends.
You can choose a variety of alternative paths, mostly woodland, that increases the rise and fall and difficulty level.

Great day out with family, even grandson did well , good maps well clear of tracks , will do it again even me been sixty

My favourite place

did our own path, so many trails and places to explore. very beautiful. need to go early before 9 am, crowds start gathering after 10.

very crowded. can get muddy but worth the views. be careful of rock slides. we heard rocks falling from the big rock face cliff, of course people shouting wasn't helping.

did the entire loop. beautiful views

Really enjoyed this hike. I love that their are lots of different trails so that you can see Oldman Storr from different view points. You can also wonder off the trails and do your own thing. We wondered far enough away from the others visiting Storr so that we could take our drone out. It's absolutely beautiful here. We arrived at about 1pm and the parking lot was full, but to be fair that parking lot holds maybe 10 cars. So people were parking along the road. There were also quite a few people there when we arrived, but once you get further up the path, people go their own way and it feels like you're the only one there.

Pretty, various surfaces, no hills!

Great days climbing/hiking. Tough if your fitness isn't great but still manageable. Wear good footwear and don't over pack your bag. Water/Food/fresh clothes. boom!!

A good route, not my favourite in the area as is quite pedally but worth a visit

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.

Great walk up to Chew Reservoir with dog.
Mostly tarmac surface so easy walking but steep in places.

beautiful views

Hard going if you're not used to hiking in parts.

Challenging yesterday afternoon with steady wind and gusts ~40mph. Great hike fantastic views on clear day.

So so so so so stunning. Views are amazing, but the climbing scramble up and along the ridge are not for the faint. Wouldn’t try the ridge section on a gusty or rainy day unless you’re an experienced climber.

very easy to moderate trail! lovely views.

We had a great morning hike of over 3 hrs going up making the round on top and coning back. Lovely to take a swim afterwards in the lake.
Good views and scenery well marked path easy to follow
