Nice sunny day to start off. Climbed steeply up past the hydroelectric workings. Then onto Cruach Nam Miseag. Views excellent. Spearhead very straightforward, then onto top of Ben Narnain. From there enjoyed the views southwards to ailsa craig, eastwards to loch lomond, ben lomond and northwards to ime and the crainlarich hills.
Descended to the Bealach a Mhaim and climbed a soggy Ben Ime.
Once top of Ime reached clouds came in a visbility badly restricted - could see down to glen kinglas but that was about it.
Descended from Ime rapidly but had to call it a day as time was marching on leaving the Cobbler for another day.
This was frustrating as the Cobbler's summit looked really close to the path on the way back down - need to leave earlier next time! 8)
Took the tourist route back past the massive Narnain Boulders, then past the dam, into the forest and around the zigzags.
