If you’re looking for something a little more challenging than a simple walk or hike, why not tackle a Munro? Scotland has as many as 283 Munros, which are Scottish mountains over 3,000ft, ranging from heathery-strewn hills to intimidating rock spikes.
One of Scotland’s more approachable Munros is Ben Lomond, a 3,195ft mountain located in the heart of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Even though Ben Lomond is less demanding than some of Scotland’s other Munros, it should only be attempted by experienced, fully-equipped walkers.
The trek to the top of Ben Lomond is fairly tough, but the extensive views of the Lowlands and a stunning mountain vista make it all the more worthwhile.
