“Ben Lomond Climb 6th June 2014”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

First of all what a bright, warm sunny day it was was high 20's.
Set off walk through Rowardenan Car Park at 10am, took the tourist up past the forest and into the hills, met so many friendly hillwalkers on the way as this was my first time hill climbing, was initially struggling but took plenty of rest and drank plenty of water.
Reached summit at 5.45 pm- took me 7hrs 45mins to get to the top, thought off giving up was I got to the steep climb towards the summit but was encouraged by other experienced hill walkers on the way. Once I got to the summit views were breathing taking and has it was a clear sunny day could see everything all around at the trig point at the summit,
Spent 15 mins at summit and started descent down, its quicker getting down, did it in half the time took about 4hrs getting down and got to the deserted car park about 10.20am, just before it got dark.

A big Thank You too all the people who helped me carrying my rucksack down during my descent, especially the two young couple from the Youth Hostel. who offered to take my rucksack down the rugged forest and left it at the entrance of the climb.

Overall a spectacular and memorable Hill Climb I will cherish forever.

We did the hard way up ( by Ptarmigan) and it was okey. We start from Rowardennan Hotel. and take the tourist route down.

“My first Munro!”

Fantastic hill to climb with stunning views. A bit like Sauchiehall Street on a Saturday though as I climbed it on a very sunny day.

lovely views every time I stepped out of the hotel of Ben Lomond, it's a beautiful mountain and it was capped with snow that week even though it was very sunny it could sure mist up and really look spectacular, can be seen all around the Loch
