Hi Jim and welcome to Walkhighlands

We've currently got route descriptions for Beinn Narnain and Beinn Ime, for The Cobbler which is a classic summit to visit, and for Ben Vane. Beinn an Lochain is a great steep wee hill too.

We don't yet feature the Ben Vorlich in the Arrochar Alps but I have previously climbed this by a couple of different routes. One was heading up directly from the Loch Sloy dam to reach the ridge just south of the summit - a steep slog. The other was to go from Garristuck by Ardlui to the bealach north of Stob nan Coinnich and then head over this to the summit, with a descent down the Little Hills ridge continuing northeast to Stuckendroin. This was a better route but a more strenuous walk than you might think from the map.

Hope that helps. Do come back and let us know how you get on by adding your photos and story to the walk reports board!
