​​​​​Visitors to Ben Lomond National Park are reminded to please ensure that you have snow chains with you. 

All vehicles driving beyond the Ben Lomond Lower Car Park must carry correctly fitting snow chains at all times during the snow season (June to October). Visitors must adhere to any signage directing the fitting of chains.

Conditions often change throughout the day. While it may be possible at times to drive to the village without chains, later in the day it may be too dangerous to drive down the mountain if it snows or water on the road freezes.
