Rising from the east shore of Loch Lomond to a height of 974m (3,193ft), Ben Lomond offers exhilarating walking and spectacular views across Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park.

The Trust cares for almost 22km2 of land here, including the summits of Ben Lomond, Ptarmigan and Beinn Uird. The mountain is one of Scotland’s most popular hill walks, with over 30,000 people climbing to the summit each year.

Ben Lomond is one of the Trust's 46 Munros (What is a Munro?), and is the most southerly Munro in Scotland.

Much of Ben Lomond is designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for the range of upland habitats present from low to high altitude. The property is also tenanted as a sheep and cattle farm, and the Trust and tenant are working together to promote a balance between the grazing use and the needs of natural habitats and wildlife.

The area has a rich cultural and archaeological heritage, which you can find out more about through a visit to Ardess Lodge and the Ardess Hidden History Trail.
