Ben Lomond

About this place

Scotland’s most southerly Munro offers spectacular views of Loch Lomond.

  • Pull on your walking boots and enjoy spectacular views of Loch Lomond from the summit.
  • Follow the 1-mile Ardess Hidden History Trail and find out about the mountain’s human history.
  • Visit the thatched cruck-framed building, a replica of the type of structures you would have found here 300 years ago.
  • Make the most of our rangers’ expertise by booking a guided walk.

Ben Lomond is the most southerly Munro (mountain over 3,000ft/914m), at 3,193ft/974m. It’s one of the most popular hill-walks in Scotland.

The mountain is a central, prominent feature of the landscape of the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, together with its namesake loch.

The summit is the highest part of the area of land in the care of the National Trust for Scotland, which also includes the woodlands and fields of the lower slopes, peatland and moorland, and the crags and steep slopes of the high ground.

Look out for wildlife including ptarmigan and ravens, skylarks and wheatears, black grouse and even pine martens.

There’s also a wealth of history to be discovered, particularly on the lower slopes but even in the name of the mountain itself!

Did you know?

Although peatlands only cover 3% of the world’s land mass, they accumulate and store more than twice the amount of carbon as all the world’s forests.
