23/08/12 Ben Vorlich Loch Lomondside

Out with a Falkirk Community Trust High Tops team of Billy, Norrie and Vic today on Ben Vorlich west of Loch Lomond.

We approached from Inveruglas via the private road to the Loch Sloy Dam and headed up the path on the West face, which was wet and muddy in places, but finished through some fine mica schist rock scenery just befere gaining the South ridge. After heading out to the North top we descended the South ridge, which gave great views down Loch Lomond. The path down the ridge became very indefinite and I’m not sure if we lost it, or it just died out and the last few hundred metres of descent to the track was very rough through bracken and tussocks and not to be recommended.

Light showers during the day, but also some good patches of sunshine and cloud above the summits at times.
