Beinn Narnain and Beinn Ime which are the highest hills of the Arrochar Alps region. The route starts from the head of Loch Long where a signposted path on the north-western side of the road leads steeply up a concrete staircase until it becomes horizontal. From here head uphill on Beinn Narnain's south western ridge avoiding crags until you reach a rocky knoll at the foot of "The Spearhead". Climb the gully of buttress to reach summit. Then descend grassy slopes onto a col between the 2 munros which gives easy access to Beinn Ime's summit. To descend return back to the col between the hills and follow path south to source of Allt a' Bhalachain continue down to Narnain bolders then head north east until you reach the top of forest commision and old cablecar where the initial ascent was made. Descend back down to Loch Long and Arrochar. Beinn Narnain's rocky form may not attract in quite the same way as it's smaller neighbour The Cobbler but is a majestic mountain and has rugged upper features which are well concealed as you approach from the southeast. Beinn Narnain & Beinn Ime suffer from being overshadowed by its smaller neighbour Ben Arthur, better known as The Cobbler which the crowds come to climb. Most striking, though, is the view south west down onto The Cobbler. Seen from here you get a much clearer sense of the layout of the mountain than you do from the normal view from Arrochar. ]]> 5 Forest 10 Waypoint 40 Dot 230 Dot 320 Waypoint 500 Dot 600 Dot 660 Waypoint 750 Dot 800 Waypoint 790 Waypoint 926 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.

It is best viewed from the A83 road around Butterbridge which is also an access point to the mountian. The mountain has steep sides on both east & northern sides and has a fine north eastern summit ridge with the summit in the middle marked with a large summit cairn. The southern side of Beinn Ìme has grassy slopes which drop down via a broad south eastern ridge to Bealach a'Mhaim which separates it from Bienn Narnain which is usually climbed on the same days outing. Access is usually from Succoth where one may follow the same path that is used to reach The Cobbler before taking the right fork near the base of the Cobbler's main crags and continuing up the valley, across the bealach and up Ben Ime's eastern ridge. If climbing with Bienn Narnain you descend to Bealach a'Mhaim and then ascend Beinn Ìme and return via the path from Succoth. Alternatively, the summit can be reached from the pass of Rest and be Thankful and from the Loch Lomond side, using the private road that leads to Loch Sloy. ]]> Summit 900 Dot 630 Dot 630 Waypoint 500 Dot 489 Dot 470 Waypoint 455 Dot 412 Dot 348 Dot 341 Dot 330 Waypoint 336 Dot 320 Waypoint 230 Dot 40 Dot 10 Dot 5 Dot 5 Forest 10 Waypoint 40 Dot 230 Dot 320 Waypoint 500 Dot 600 Dot 660 Waypoint 750 Dot 800 Waypoint 790 Waypoint 926 Beinn Ìme.
