An easy trail at the foot of Ben Lomond
Rowardennan, which nestles at the foot of Ben Lomond, is literally the end of the road. It's well worth the visit to enjoy the tranquil loch shore, magnificent views and the chance to take to the water or head for the hills. It also has a small beach that's perfect for paddling.
Ben Lomond Memorial Trail
A gentle stroll to the shore of Loch Lomond, where there is a memorial sculpture to commemorate the Scots who gave their lives in the two World Wars.
Firm and smooth gravel surface throughout. Generally flat with short moderate ramps.
Allow ¼ hour
The granite feature was created for the Memorial Park by Angus sculptor Doug Cocker, in recognition of those who gave their lives in the service of their country. It stands at a stunning viewpoint over Loch Lomond and is the perfect place to remember and celebrate Scotland’s people, rich history and unique landscape.
Ben Lomond hill path
The hill path to the top of this iconic peak – with magnificent views over one of the country's most beautiful lochs – begins at Rowardennan. Find out more about the 8 mile round trip taking in a 974m summit at WalkHighlands.
Don't be fooled by the well-worn path leading up this mountain – this is a rough and strenuous route and suitable for fit and experienced walkers. Remember that even in summer the weather can change very quickly here, so be prepared.
