The start of the day was very misty in Arrochar.

First sighting of Beinn Narnain. As we walked we discussed which direction to approach from. Deciding not to attempt the boulders given the slippery conditions.

On the descent of Narnain, the mist cleared enough for us to see The Cobbler.

Then we even got a nice view west from Narnain through the Rest & Be Thankful.

The walk up Beinn Ime was saturated, you could see water oozing out of the topsoil.

The summit of Beinn Ime, love the mini cairn!
