Ben Lomond Torchlight Challenge 2017

16:15 - 23:59

Experience the thrill of being on top of a mountain in the dark, and help raise funds for path repair and mountain rescue.

Join with like-minded participants to experience the magic of being on a high mountain in darkness, in the safe company of experienced Lomond Mountain Rescue Team members and the NTS ranger service.

The walk up Ben Lomond will be during sunset, and a torchlight beacon will be sent out from the summit, before descending by torch, and hopefully a bit of moonlight. This year there will be a beacon shone back at participants from Goatfell on Arran.

To participate you will need to pay a registration fee and raise a minimum sponsorship sum in aid of two good causes: Ben Lomond conservation work, including path repair and maintenance, and Lomond Mountain Rescue Team.

All funds raised by the event will be split 60:40 between these two worthwhile mountain causes.

This is an arduous walk, which will take several hours and require a good degree of fitness.

Registration packs will be available from the end of March onwards. In the meantime please email for more information and to register interest.

For further information please email benlomond@nts.org.uk  or phone 01360 870224.
