The top of Ben Lomond is on the right, the slightly spikier peak on the left is Ptarmigan. I walked up the main path to Ben Lomond peak then down the scramble to Ptarmigan. There is a path down from here making a nice circular walk. The weather started glorious for the climb.
Of course the views down Loch Lomond are always beautiful.
Even as the cloud cover builds. This is Scotland after all!
Ben Lomond is the southernmost Munro and is basically in the outer suburbs of Glasgow. OK, perhaps as far out as Potters Bar from central London.
So it gets a lot of feet and has to be managed. Hence the stepping stones at 800m above sea level...
The hills carry on to the North, more walking to be done there.
And of course it rained...
