Ben Vane

Ben Vane's Height:916m
Summit Grid Reference:NN 277 098
Translation:Middle Hill
Start Point:Car Park at Inveruglas Pier next to the A82

 

Situated on the north side of Coiregrogain and nearby Inveruglas, this beautiful mountain is part of the Arrochar Alps in the Southern Highlands. The South side is very steep while the other sides are much easier to climb. Ben Vane offers a relatively easy walk but can also be combined with Ben Ime or Beinn Dubh to make it more challenging. The mountain offers fantastic views to Ben Lomond, Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine with its surrounding summits such as Ben Ledi. With a height of 915m Ben Vane is the smallest Munro.

The Walk

 

Even though Beinn Ime is the closest neighbour and only about 500m away, it involves a lot of climbing to get from one mountain to the other.

 

The starting point for Ben Vane is at Inveruglas Pier (4 miles north of Tarbet) where you can find a car park. Follow the private road next to the A82 which leads to the mountain. The lower paths of Ben Vane are quite easy but further up there are rocky outcrops, particularly in the north-west up the ridge. There are different possibilities for the return. One interesting way is descending from the north-west along the ridge of Beinn Dubh direction Loch Sloy Dam. However, most visitors just return the same way back. Above you can see a map with the starting point in Inveruglas.

 

For those who stay in the area for a longer period, there are many other mountains in the direct surrounding. Ben Vorlich , Ben Arthur (The Cobbler) Beinn Ime are just a few mountain peaks situated in the Arrochar Alps. On a long summer day it is interesting to walk Ben Vane combined with with Beinne Ime and Beinn Narnain.

 

Besides hill walking, there are many more activities nearby. For outdoor enthusiasts a visit to the Argyll Forest Park is an interesting experience as well as the lochs in the area. The starting point for Ben Vane is situated just next to the popular Loch Lomond and more to the south-west is loch long, a Scottish sea loch with some beautiful wildlife such as seals.

 

Transport

 

About 4 miles north of the starting point is Ardlui which has train connections to Glasgow as well as Tarbet which is 4.2 miles south of the starting point. There are also buses from Glasgow to Fort William and Oban which stop in Tarbet and Ardlui. By car follow the A82 from the south until Inveruglas Pier.
