With a high-level start point, a direct path and fine views, Ben Donich makes an excellent objective for a shorter hillwalk. There is a little rocky ground with a slight scramble down before the summit to add a little character.
There is a fairly good path for most of the ascent, though it is not continuous on the summit plateau. There is some rocky ground with a short easy scramble at one point. Deep cleft-like cavities beside the path could become a trap when covered in snow.
None to start, but there are bus services to Rest and Be Thankful, around 400m along the road, including from Glasgow, Oban and Helensburgh.
Ben Donich access car park.
