Setting off Towards Rowardennan Lodge to Tackle Ben Lomond via The Ptarmigan Ridge

Starting to Climb up Through The Ferns

Higher up we go

Still in Single File

Starting to Spread Out Now

Its Not That Funny

Heads Down Keep Going

Gaining Height Now

Taking a Breather

Out of The Ferns With The Start of The Ptarmigan Ridge Just Visible in The Clouds

High Above Loch Lomond

In The Distance The Distinctive Outline of The Cobbler (Ben Arthur)

How Many Press Ups Can You do While Holding Your Breath Under Water?

The Zig Zags to The Start of The Ridge.

Approaching The Zig Zags

Still Climbing High Above Loch Lomond

Taking a Breather

First You Zig

Then You Zag

Admiring The View Down Loch Lomond

The Southern Edge of The Ptarmigen Ridge

Lets Have a Butty

Off Again Along The Ridge

A Bit of Down Hill Before The Final Climb

The Stepping Stones

Smiling Now With Only a Few Feet to go

A Seaplan Flying Above The Ptarmigan Ridge

In Amongst The Rocks Near The Top

Follow me

"Come on Nearly There"

A Flat Bit Just Below The Summit

The Last Bit to the Summit of Ben Lomond (The Last Munro)

Who's For Champagne Then?

Our Group on The Final Summit of Ben Lomond (The Last Munro)

The Last Munro

Heading Back Down

In Single File Again

Come on Keep up

Looking East Towards Loch Ard

Might Have Time For a Beer at This Pace

Back Down The Tourist Route

I Think I See The Van

Sill Coming Down

I'll Drink to That, Ptarmigan and Ben Lomond Now in Cloud

Its Been a Long Day

The Night Before

Close up of The Cake
