Had a great time walking Ben Lomond.
Easy to see why this is one of the most popular Munros; easy navigation and not too difficult.
We have a great walk up. I expected some snow near the summit but not quite as much as there was. Still not enough to cause any issues with walking over but quite a bit none the less. The route on walkhighlands suggests returned via another route. I would suggest to anyone to do it this way, there are a few steep ledges to get down but it was worth it. I wouldn't have gone this way but as there were quite a few foot prints I thought it couldn't be that bad.
Highlight of the day had to be stopping for lunch on the descent. My mate had 3G on his phone so we got youtube playing Loch Lomond by Runrig - very patriotic!
