Ben Venue from Ledard Farm

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Ben Venue - one of the rockiest hills in the Trossachs - is not in view from Loch Àrd, which results in this approach being quieter than that from Loch Achray. Nonetheless the beautiful broadleaved woodland of the lower Ledard Glen provides a picturesque approach, though the upper glen is boggy. Once on the ridge, the views are magnificent.


Path up the Ledard Glen is very muddy in places and boggy higher up. On Ben Venue itself the going is rough and rocky.
