I had done Narnain previously, and was under the impression, that Beinn Ime, was just a simple progression, so off I went up Narnain. It was a slog in the heat, but I made it to the top with little dramas.
However, as I reached the top, I came to the realisation, that Beinn Ime, wasn't the simple walk along the ridge I stupidly thought it was. It was the serious descent and ascent the other direction!! My heart sunk, at the prospect of having to go down such a distance, to have to climb up Ime! But, not being the type to go home having only done half the job, I carried on.
The cloud was coming and going at the top, and as I met people coming down, they said they didn't get views, then another group said they got great ones. Was a bit of a lottery.
As it turned out, the cloud coming and going gave a fantastic back drop for my photos. I spent about an hour taking from different angles, as the views changed constantly.
Due to my lack of computer skills, i am only able to post a few on here, but they can all be viewed on my facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/Munrobagpiper?fref=ts
That is number 24 since January bagpiped, and I am hoping to tick off many more in August and September, so keep an eye out for my charity developments.
