This was the second time I have done Ben Lomond and once again it was completely covered in cloud!

I set off about 0945 hrs and reached the top about 2 hours later. I was going to come down the Ptarmigan route but the visibility was down to under 10 metres if not less and the wind nearly knocking me off my feet!

I'd suggest to anyone to do this munro early in the morning as it gets really busy beyond about 11am.

I will try again in the future for better views at the top but all in all it is a good leg stretcher this one. :D
