The compact group of mountains known as the Arrochar Alps are renowned for their steep, rugged and rocky nature. However, the highest peak – Beinn Ime – has a simple slope when approached from this direction. Beinn Narnain has a much rougher and rockier character. The views – especially of the nearby Cobbler – are excellent.
Quite a bit of Ice and snow on top but weather was great. Although a steep and rocky mountain from most viewpoints, the ascent from this side is up a broad and somewhat soggy slope, though there is a path. The ascent is a long one, with almost four hundred metres to gain from the bealach; it ends at the trig point at 1011m
Beinn Ime is a broad dome on this side and the return route has a good path.
Rocky, steep and eroded path on Beinn Narnain with very mild scrambling.
