Ben Lomond rises to to over 3000 feet (974M) from the eastern shores of Loch Lomond making the most southerly Munro.  The normal route up this mountain is quite straightforward but is invariably busy at weekends, so our route will be a traverse of the hill, climbing up the less popular but more interesting Ptarmigan ridge and descending by the normal  tourist  route.  12Km, 990m of ascent, this will take us 5 - 6 hours. This is a straightforward mountain walk but expect steep climbs and descents.

Photographs are from GOC Ben Lomond walk, June 2018.
