Hello folks :D I have only just started hill walking this year with a group of work colleagues so far I have climbed 2 Munro's Ben Nevis in June it took me 4 Hrs up & just over 3 down we have also climbed Schiehallion last Friday this took 2 Hrs up 1.25 Hrs down. we are planning more walks in the future possibly Ben Lomond and next year Ben Lawers. Hopefully with any luck we may even get a clear top on one of our trips so far snow and low cloud. then again it is Scotland I wouldn't have it any other way. Although not a Munro I do like the Ochil's Ben Cleuch is particularly nice as well as quite hard work for a short walk. 8)

Hi there,
Welcome to the site. It's great for sharing ideas and achievements. Like you, I am fairly new to climbing Munros and have spent lots of time in the Ochils, Lomonds, The Bishop etc because they are close to where I live.Ben Cluich is a super walk. I did Ben Lawers on one of the best days of the year.Got a bit sunburned! It's a great way of bagging a few in one day. We did Beinn Ghlas and An Stuc too.
Best Wishes
Gillian

Hi there,

i have been up Ben Lommond twice, both by tourist trail. I haven't walked up the ptarmigan ridge but having read other people's posts it looks like the more interesting aproach of the two options. Have you had a look at doing the circuit, maybe up ptarmigan ridge and down tourist trail?

Last time I went up Ben Lommond the vis was really bad so didnt see the view I did on the first walk. If you catch it on a good day the view down Loch Lommond is really beautiful.

You could always have a read of my walk report for the full round, i.e. up the 'tourist route' and down the Ptarmigan Ridge (link below):
