What a perfect day for a walk up these three started at the back of six. Not a single midge or drop of rain all day.

A party of 5 me, my twin and his fiancé, my wee bro and Iains wee sky terrier Bobby. We headed from succoth, arrochar car park with the intention of doing Ben ime and the cobbler but not the kind to waste such a good day we did Narnian as well. The walk to the Bealach was easy going. The view to the cobbler was great

ben Narnian was nice and easy to go up on the Bealach side but I was crawling down the other side. Brilliant day. :D

From your logger it looks as if these are your first Munros? Really? You seemed very casual about it. Congratulations. (& to the wee bro')
