Got back yesterday from the trip to Arrochar, what amazing scenery and hard climbing! Climbed Beinn Narnain and Ben Arthur (The Cobbler). Such a good trip.

Few pictures below:

Bit of a scramble to get to the top of Beinn Narnain, but worth it!

Climbing the second peak (much easier with those steps)

More interesting looking rocks at the top.

Descended a wee bit to get this great view of The Cobbler

All in I was on the hills for 6 hours, climbed from sea level to 926 m (3,038 ft) on Ben Narnain, descended that (not to sea level thankfully) then climbed to 884 m (2,900 ft) on Ben Arthur and then back to sea level.
