Ben Vane, from Inveruglas
Ben Vane is only just high enough to make Munro status, but it is a steep, rocky little mountain that admits no inferiority to its higher neighbours. The ascent is short by hillwalking standards but there are several false tops and the climb is a sustained one.
Track for the approach, then path up steep, rocky hillside.
Citylink buses from Glasgow pass Inveruglas.
