Rowardennan (Gaelic: Rubha Aird Eònain) is a small rural community on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond in Scotland.[1] It is mainly known as the starting point for the main path up Ben Lomond.[2]

Rowardennan is at the northern end of the public road, but the West Highland Way passes through the area and continues north along the side of the loch. Rowardennan has a hostel and camping for hikers on the West Highland Way. A small passenger ferry crosses the loch to Tarbet on the opposite shore.

It appears as "Dennan's Row" in Walter Scott's poem The Lady of the Lake.
