Chains are essential when you’re going to Ben Lomond. During the winter season its a legal requirement to carry and fit chains when the conditions require on Ben Lomond Road. This is due to the icy road conditions and also allows safe passage up the steep incline and hairpin corners of Jacobs Ladder and along Ben Lomond plateau at the top of the ladder.
