Overview

A circular walk of Ben Lomond in a clockwise direction, that is ascent via the Ptarmigan and descent via the "tourist route"; the opposite direction of the Walkhighlands route because who wants to climb down the steep way, not me.

(Note that there is a Loch Lomond Low Walk on the calendar for the same day)

The last section to the summit is steep and a little airy, but there's no real scrambling or height exposure.
