There’s nothing left of the restaurant and pub at Ben Lomond after a fire caused significant damage to the building last night.

That’s according to Flea Foot, the owner of Ben Lomond of Snow and Sport. She went up to Ben Lomond last night as soon as she heard the news, and was devastated by the scenes when she arrived.

She speaks with Brian Carlton this morning about this incident, and tells him that the mountain’s public toilets are now gone, along with the one place you could get a beer.

Flea also says that patchy phone reception on Ben Lomond was a significant issue when trying to fight the fire last night.
