Forecast was looking good for the weekend so decided to travel to Arrochar to walk Beinn Narnain & Beinn Ime, and possibly the Cobbler if we had time.

The walk in was short and quickly started the steep ascent .

Weather improving as the day went on.
Tough ascent in terms of the steep continuous gradient with very little breaks of flat ground
Near the top of Beinn Narnain

Cloudy at the top of Beinn Narnain

Amazing pics of the Cobbler! Will have to get round to doing Ime and Narnain soon (and Ben Vane if it's straightforward enough from Ime).
