Ben Lomond Bunkhouse

Ben Lomond Bunkhouse is located in Rowardennan, on the east side of Loch Lomond at the foot of Ben Lomond, and on the West Highland Way.

It’s ideally situated for climbing Ben Lomond, as an overnight stop if you’re walking the West Highland Way, or for a group who just want somewhere quiet and private to enjoy the outdoors.

Sleeps: 10
Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park
G63 0AR

The profits from the bunkhouse go to support conservation work and path repair on Ben Lomond.

Accommodation details

Upstairs there are two bedrooms with bunk beds (1 four-bedded and 1 six-bedded), two shower rooms, both with a WC and one with a bath. Downstairs there’s a large dining kitchen with two ovens/hobs, a comfortable lounge with wood-burning stove, another WC, and a laundry and drying room. There’s also a stone firepit in the grounds.

We provide bread for toast, butter and porridge oats for breakfast. Tea, coffee, sugar and milk are also included in the nightly rate. Due to our remote location we have an honesty shop selling the basics for a meal. There are no grocery shops in Rowardennan and eating out options are currently limited, so if you’re walking the West Highland Way we can do a shop for you so you have what you need for meals or packed lunches, etc.

Regional information

Ben Lomond is one of Scotland’s best-known mountain landmarks and attracts walkers, climbers and nature lovers in all seasons. Pine martens, red squirrels, ptarmigan and black grouse are all regularly seen here, as well as a wealth of other wildlife.

Rising from the east shore of Loch Lomond to a height of 974m, Ben Lomond offers exhilarating walking and spectacular views across Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park and central Scotland. It’s the most southerly Munro and one of the most popular due to its accessible location.

The Ardess Hidden History Trail is a 1-mile circular walk through the natural oak woodland behind the bunkhouse, and is perfect for families. The landscape is significant for its cultural heritage, with an archaeological record of an extensive population living across the lower slopes of Ben Lomond into the post-medieval period.

Further information about Ben Lomond and the conservation work we carry out here are available from the ranger.
