After a sleepless night we started our ascent which practically all of the way up Beinn Narnain was steep and with some scrambling thrown in made it an amazing challenge :shock: But after taking it easy and some good old determination we made it up to summit and to begin with couldn’t see much as the clouds were over us but then it cleared to give us an amazing view of Ben Arthur ( the Cobbler) but we couldn’t see our next task as Beinn Ime was still shrouded in cloud oh and on the way up the Midges were horrendous most of the way we were covered in them but perseverance paid off and we were soon high enough that they left us alone. While on the summit we had the amazing privilege of watching a mountain Hare running around the summit which was just awesome. We then continued after some well deserved food to decent from Beinn Narnain and head for Beinn Ime the decent here was a bit treacherous in places with lots of lose stones but we all made it down safe and then started our accent of Beinn Ime which was a lot easier than Beinn Narnain and apart from a few boggy patches didn’t really give us any problems. When we got to the cairn at the summit we had to have our obligatory selfie with the cairn before we had a little more food and then started our descent and came across a few guys trying to mountain bike up it which was impressive and then no real issues on the way down the path was good and full of people heading for Ben Arthur. But all in all this was an amazing challenge and I would definitely recommend it although probably not for first timers :lol:
