So, started at the path which is the path for both Ben Narnain and Ben Arthur (The Cobbler) It was about an hour and a bit on the path until it forks to the left or right depending which mountain you want, I wanted Narnain so that was to the right. It was a very cloudy day so I couldn't even see what I was climbing, it was a very easy climb to the top, just followed a path the whole way and hardly any people were out today so got to sit at the top on my own for a while until the only other two people climbing it came up and the had a gorgeous dog too !!! The trouble was getting down, the path is not as clear when it's cloudy and I lost it so started making my own path but just be careful, some quite high drops around the summit coming down and not clear to see when it's cloudy, I eventually found the path and made my way down, thought about the cobbler but I will do that another time ..... 4 hours up and down for Narnain, nice wee day to stretch the legs.

That was the plan to begin with but on the day it was very very cloudy, and I didn't take a map so I thought it was a bit dodgy to attempt it .... I could have done the cobbler but I was happy with narnain that day, but yes, Ime is the closest Munro to me that I have not done so that one shall be done this June cheers
