Set off at 10.45 am from Arrochar car park, myself and Arche JC my Labradoodle pup, this was his first Munro and think he enjoyed it by the way he scoffed his meal at the peak.
The path up was fairly quiet, with only a handful of people until we reached the top of hill en-route to the cobbler, where it was mote like Sauchiehall St on a Saturday.
The weather conditions were perfect, sun was out and a light wind to cool you off, it was not until we reached the foot of the cobbler that it started to get quite cold and time to don the jacket. Arche JC care not a jot continues to run about daft.
Ground works are ongoing just now and the paths are being re surfaced so we had to dodge the work men and plant on the way over to Beinn Narnain. I was quite surprised about the lack of pathway and had to negotiate a path up the hill walking through bog for a good 20 mins or so which was not very pleasant, however the weather remained good and Arche JC quite enjoyed the mud.
We managed to get to the first peak and then noticed two more, one higher than the other!! we reached the top and laid our stone on the pile at the top at 13.15Hrs approx 2.5Hrs after leaving the car park.
We had our lunch, a quick 15 Mins before setting off back down the hill again. wearing gloves, jacket and hood up due to temperature drop.
Overall we had a great wee day out. One happy and his dog. Arche JC.
