Was only intending to do Ben Lomond from the Ptarmigan Ridge route, however when I got to the summit, noticed the route down to Cruinn a Bheinn.Very little difficulty in reaching this hill, only obstacle was a Deer fence which didn't have a gate to go through, so a vault over that was required, and then aimed for the East side of the hill and pick a trail through the crags along that side, not a difficult route to do. The view over to the East ridge of Ben Lomond was worth the wander. You would have two options back, the route I took, joining the ATV track which brought you out at the cottage at Caliness and the walk back along the West Highland Way to Rowardennan , a frankly uninspiring five mile walk, or the option I would recommend, make your way back to the Ptarmigan Ridge path and walk out that way.
