Ben Lomond

Scotland's most southerly Munro

Whatever the season, Ben Lomond has a dignity and a magic that for centuries has drawn artists, beauty-seekers, hikers and climbers.

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.

These excellent walking opportunities, and ease of access, attract over 30,000 walkers and mountaineers every year – Ben Lomond is one of Scotland’s most popular summits. However, the Munro and the surrounding area still retain the sense of wilderness that Rob Roy – Scotland’s famous cattle drover, clan chief and outlaw – experienced when he roamed here.
