Ben Lomond and Other Walks

Ben Lomond Hill Race Loch Lomond

Scottish Hill Racing - Ben Lomond Hill Race 2017 at Rowardennan, Loch Lomond This is a popular race on a popular Munro - Ben Lomond. The biggest dangers are colliding with hill walkers and tripping on the stony descent. This race has a high casualty rate, with bloodied knees and several broken ankles in recent years. That said, its a great race with distinct sections of forest trail (largely felled now), open hill, plateau, summit dome, and narrow summit ridge.  Not for the faint hearted!!
