Ben Lomond

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

Planning your visit

Ben Lomond is accessed from Rowardennan, on the east shore of Loch Lomond. 

The nearby hotel and youth hostel both serve breakfast and evening meals, but there’s no local shop – so please ensure you arrive well provisioned for the day!

Please see our drop-down Facilities below for helpful information about planning your visit.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us we can be contacted by email: or telephone 01360 870224.

Facilities & access

  • There’s a small ramp into the lobby of the ranger centre.
  • The main access track along the loch shore is rough and more suitable for buggies than wheelchairs.

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

Disabled parking is available at Ardess Lodge and can be arranged in advance.

An accessible toilet is available at Rowardennan car park.

Dogs are welcome in the area; please be aware that both sheep and cattle are grazed on Ben Lomond, so dogs should be kept under close control at all times.

Parking is provided by Forestry Commission Scotland at a charge of £3 per car for the day.
