Ardlui to Arrochar via Ben Vorlich

Ben Vorlich is one of those hills everyone should climb once.

Only once.

If Ben Lomond is the magnet which attracts walks to the hills over Loch Lomond, Ben Vorlich is it’s polar opposite. No easy path here, from whatever angle. Instead it repels all but the most determined with it’s combination of steep sides, crags, bog and rolling hummocks combining to defend it’s summit in depth. Add to that it’s own weather system which seems to consist of constant murk and wetness, it certainly defies the casual walker. Separated from Ben Lomond by a thin strip of water, it could be a thousand miles away for all I could see on my most recent visit.

So having done so once, why go again a second time? Simple. It’s to prepare for my third time…
