Did this walk by myself, started walking at 9:45am and back in car park at 14:30 approx, reaching the top of Ben Ime at 12:30pm.
The hardest part is the boggy sloped of Ben Ime. I found that after going through the gate, the best route was keeping over to the right of the main path at least 20 metres away. Much less water logged ground and much quicker coming down.

Once get to rockier ground it gets firmer again and I quickly made the top. Weather was great but a sharp wind at top.

Had lunch beside the second top out of the wind. Lovely in the sun with great view. Then straight back down. I was making dinner for a couple of friends and didn't have time to do Narnain too.
