I had previously climbed only 1 Munro - Ben Vorlich by Loch Earn and that was 8 years ago. Having given up rugby and looking for a new hobby I decided to do some more hill walking. My father-in-law suggested we climb Ben Lomond, a hill which he has climbed many times, and so began my journey to see as much of the Scottish hills as possible.

We climbed on a warm day with the short section through the forest resulting in an early sweat. Sunshine in the early part of the walk turned to a little cloud / haze as we reached the summit. I found the going relatively straight forward. Cloud at the top obscured the views slightly but we could see the Arrochar Alps reasonably well.

The hill was a lot busier than I had expected and my enthusiasm for walking was re-kindled.

Overall an enjoyable day.
