Trip Planner: Europe / UK / Scotland / Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park / Rowardennan / Ben Lomond
Ben Lomond, 974m, is a distinctive mountain in the Scottish Highlands. Situated on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, it is the most southerly of the Munros. Ben Lomond lies within the Ben Lomond National Memorial Park and the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, property of the National Trust for Scotland.Its accessibility from Glasgow and elsewhere in central Scotland, together with the relative ease of ascent from Rowardennan, makes it one of the most popular of all the Munros. On a clear day, it is visible from the higher grounds of Glasgow and across Strathclyde; this may have led to it being named 'Beacon Mountain', as with the equally far-seen Lomond Hills in Fife. Ben Lomond summit can also be seen from Ben Nevis, the highest peak in Britain, over 40mi away. The West Highland Way runs along the western base of the mountain, by the loch.Ben Lomond's popularity in Scotland has resulted in several namesakes in the former British colonies of Australia, New Zealand, Jamaica, Trinidad and the United States – see this list. The mountain is mentioned directly in the popular folk song The Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond.Put Ben Lomond into our Rowardennan trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Rowardennan.

The tour can be created also as inexperienced hikers, but good condition is still good! The view from the top makes up for the tough middle section!
