Daniel & I ticked Ben Lomond on a lovely hot sunny day. We were supposedly on a climbing trip with Richard & Huw but I didn’t fancy climbing. The parking was super busy, and the trail no less so. We passed a work party doing trail maintenance, a pretty thankless task in the heat but a very necessary job given the pounding this mountain gets. Some clouds were appearing in the sky by the time we summited, casting interesting shadows across the landscape. viability wasn’t so great, the air was hazy with a couple of wild fires. Continued over Ptarmagan and down to rejoin the lake shore at Ardess.
