Ben Vane (meaning middle hill) sits in the centre of the group of four Munros called the Arrochar Alps: Ben Vorlich to the north-east, Beinn Narnain to the south and Beinn Ime to the south-west. At 916m Ben Vane is the smallest of the group and the views from the summit are therefore limited to the neighbouring hills plus a view across Loch Lomond to Ben Lomond. After an easy walk in along the A82 and the Sloy Dam service road, a rough but easily followed path leads you up the south-east ridge of Ben Vane. The lower slopes are grassy but become more rocky and steeper as height is gained. There are a few fairly convincing false summits and a couple of easy scrambles on the final two summits before the real summit plateau is eventually reached. Pick your route carefully and the scrambles should present little problem. There are two cairns on the tiny summit plateau; both appear to be about the same height. Return by retracing the outward route.
