Details for Beinn Narnain

Beinn Narnain is a munro which rises above forestry slopes to the north of the head of Loch Long and is a fairly rugged peak with the summit point located on the south eastern ridge above the rocky buttress "The Spearhead". There's a north eastern rocky ridge leading to the hilltop A'Chrois (849m) via Creag Tharsuinn. There is also a broad grassy ridge which drops down to Bealach a' Mhaim that is of interest to the munroist as this connects to the larger neighbour Beinn Ìme.

Beinn Narnain is usually climbed from Succoth at the head of Loch Long. The most commonly used route starts by climbing directly up the hillside, following a line of concrete blocks that were once part of the Loch Sloy hydro-electric scheme. (Until the construction of new path, this was also the route towards The Cobbler). At the end of the old pipeline route the route continues up Beinn Narnain's craggy south ridge.

There are several mild scrambling sections, which provide an enjoyable experience for the casual walker. The route bypasses some impressive and, when shrouded in mist at least, apparently almost impassable crags - "The Spearhead" - by means of a steep gully immediately before the summit. From the summit if clear you will see a much better view of "The Cobbler" than from Arrochar and truly apretiate this strange rock formation.

Beinn Narnain's northern ridge drops down to the Bealach a' Mhaim, a three-sided bealach with other ridges leading to The Cobbler and Beinn Ìme.
