Ben Vorlich is a bulky and very rugged mountain, the most northerly of the Arrochar Alps. It is possible to walk a fine circuit taking in the Little Hills from Ardlui to the north, but the ascent here, from Inveruglas via the Loch Sloy dam road, is the quickest and most popular. The ascent is steep but the views are superb.
Good tracks for the approach then very steep climb on hill path; broad rocky ridge above.
Citylink buses from Glasgow run along the shores of Loch Lomond past Inveruglas.
