Ben Lomond Route Map 233 viewsStart at Fernhill and follow a track up to the south ridge. Once on the ridge, it's an easy walk to the summit of Ben Lomond, with the advantage you are unlikely to come across anyone else walking the same route.

From the summit, follow the usual track down to Ben Lomond Saddle and the track back to One Mile.
