Coloured view of Ben Lomond in Scotland. Ben Lomond stands 3195 feet on the eastern bank of Loch Lomond. Dorothy Wordsworth, writing of Ben Lomond in the journal of her tour in Scotland in 1803, was not so impressed with the mountain, “ Ben Lomond stood alone, opposite to us, majestically overlooking the lake; yet there was something in this mountain which disappointed me, a want of massiveness and simplicity, perhaps from the top being broken into three distinct stages”.
