Description: Ben Vane lies to the south-west of Loch Sloy in the northern part of the Arrochar Alps. It is one of the steepest and rockiest of this group of hills. The south face rises above Coiregrogain at an angle of almost 45 degrees for 600 metres, and on other sides it is not much less steep. 
It is climbed from Inveruglas on the west side of Loch Lomond. Go up the private road in Coiregrogain for 2 kilometres and cross the bridge over the stream flowing from Loch Sloy. The way to Ben Vane continues up the south-east ridge. Despite the many small crags, it is not difficult to find a route upwards to reach the summit plateau.
