Found the following to be quite a quick but challenging winter walk. From Succoth follow the trail up through the forest to the Narnain boulders. From their head up the west slope of Beinn Narnain. This was quite an icy ascent (in January) and found myself having to kick-in a lot. However, turning to see more and more of Loch Long appearing as you got higher was very satisfying. This brings you onto the ridge just before the final scramble to the summit. Descend via Cruach nam Miseag. Took just under 4 hours.

Hi there,

nice little path up to the boulders then it looks like it gets a little interesting!
What was the view across to the Cobbler like?

Hi there. You get a good look at the cobbler taking this route (picture postcard view as you follow the path) but on this occasion I had no visibility towards the top so can't say what it looked like from there.
