A great walk in the Arrochar Alps, good weather and views.

My GPS (on smartphone) recorded 15.5km, which is more than the 13.5km of the route guide on this site. I will check on a paper map, but I followed the normal direct route (EDIT: seems 13.5km is most accurate and my phone over measured). Succoch car park, Beinn Narnain via Cruach nam Miseag, Beinn Ime via Bealach a'Mahaim and back via Allt a' Bhalachain.
