Hi Guys, Well we did Ben Lomond on Saturday and was a fantastic day. The route is quite easy going through the woods at the start until you are through the first kissing gate at the start of the Ben then its a gradual steep climb. A few false ridges and a steep climb until it opens up on the top to a fairly even track with Ben Lomond in full view. Once you get to the foot of the climb it snakes up steeply then evens out along the ridge to the summit. The views are amazing on such a clear day like we had. A well recommended walk if you havent done it and our first Munro bagged as a family. :D :D

Ideal day out: I like walking routes as i take the missus and kids. But it has to be a mountain or there is no point in doing it. I love walking ridges etc and peaks.
