Jim had downloaded the route route from Walkhighlands so it was the direct route up Narnain following the concrete bases, down Narnain to Bealach a'Mhaim and then Beinn Ime. Got to Succoth car park around 9am and set off looking forward to a good day on the hills ,this was Jims first munro and my second time up Narnain, we started off upwards with some steep walking and a bit of scrambling stopping for a rest every now and then to enjoy nice views of Ben Lomond Loch Long (no need to rush ),it was during one of our rest periods of which there was many we were passed by Britains fittest OAPs ,a lovely couple who were taking this walk as though it was a stroll in the park (must be mountain goat in the blood line we decided :lol: ) after some more steep walking and some more not to difficult scrambling we made it to the top, legs feeling it and sweating like Pavarotti in a pie shop,we met the lovely very fit OAPs again and stopped for some much needed refreshment. While enjoying lunch we saw a snow/mountain hare still with a lot of white fur visible about 100m away ,would have loved to have shown any readers of this report a photo of the hare but forgot my camera,stupid man.Finshed lunch and started to make our way down Narnain to the Bealach ,quite a steep decent but we both managed it without any great problem.Started up to the summit of Bienn Ime ,the going underfoot was pretty boggy and wet ,the legs were getting heavy but we were not for stopping so after more than one resting point we made it to the top, phew.Had another rest for a while at the summit cairn then set of down Ime onto the path passing the Narnain Boulders and back to the car ,a great 7 hours +/- in the hill ,well between the aches in our legs it was great, certainly felt this one ,god bless Radox muscle soak :lol: :lol: .
