Is navigation straight forward on Lomond? Hoping to do it soon.
Thanks

If Jack and Victor can manage it...  ;)


WalkHighlands have it listed as the most climbed Munro, so I'm sure that there is a well beaten path to the top.

Just finished watching an old episode, funniest programme ever.


To be honest, thatís what put the notion in my head after watching the final episode.

Yes it's easy on a clear day. In the fog it is still possible to go wrong, but that is true on any hill.

Ascend by the main path from Rowardennan. Descend via the Ptarmigan ridge.....
very steep to begin with but a really interesting way to come down. Takes you right into the car park. The summit area can be tricky if misty condx....steep drops to the north east.
