I wont go into to much info on walk as there is more than ample available on this site, all superb. We started off at 8am on a glorious spring morning in early April as you can see from the video[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W5TM1FH131M[/youtube]
we took the direct route up Ben Narnain over the boulders

and then the Cobbler,

I've placed the video on this site to give people a taste of what to expect if they haven't already done this walk (cant guarantee the weather) The Cobbler was really busy and we had to wait our turn to do the needle.

There was still patches of snow on the way up Beinn Ime, at the edges it looked boggy so I suppose we must have been fortunate having the snow to walk over
