Beinn Narnain & Beinn Ime Wed 1 Sept 2010

Not climbed these two hills in a long time so as Paul off on holiday and me on day off decided a mid week hillwalk was on the cards I remember climbing these the first time and there was no car park at Succoth as there is now. The new path now seems to draw one towards the improved path that runs between The Cobbler and Beinn Narnain but we wanted to climb the Cruach nam Miseag ridge so after a bit of looking found the path that leads up the old railway blocks as the start has become a little overgrown. Once on ridge the views open out to Ben Lomond and Loch Long and the first glimpse to The Cobbler always blows me away.

Just below the Summit of Beinn Narnain we stopped for a bite to eat and to admire the Spearhead on Narnain and The Cobbler, awesome !

After a wee easy scramble up the spearhead we  reached summit of Narnain where after that followed  a considerable drop and reclimb to Beinn Ime.

The descent goes back to meet the newly well constructed path between Beinn Narnain and The Cobbler then it leads one down beside the buttermilk burn and in between the gigantic Narnain Boulders and back to the car park.
