Beinn Ime (My 7th Munro) 6th Aug 2012

Munros: Beinn Ime

Date walked: 06/08/2012

Time taken: 5 hours

Distance: 13.5km

Ascent: 1011m

To locate Beinn Ime just follow the same path in Arrocher that you would use to climb Ben Arthur (The Cobbler) and Beinn Narnain. Park in the car park at the start of the path which is £1 all day. The path up to Ben Narnain is brutal, I abs
outely hate the walk up. Once you reach the back path to The Cobbler and Narnain you then need to head slighty to a North East direction, it's mountain almost straight ahead but just to the right. There isn't a good path, you have to make your way over some boggy areas until you reach a fence, it's through the only gate that leads you to the path for Ime. It's a fairly straigh forward climb to the top, you have done most of the climb coming from the car park .... Not a great mountain if the weather is bad but I can imagine great views if it's a nice day. Good shelter at the simmit from the wind if you plan having some food at the top.

Ideal day out: Climbing a new Munro although I am fiarly new to them, I just enjoy a nice peacefull day out doing about 6-7 hours mountain walking, just feels great to get away from day to day life and see beautiful Scotland.
Ambition: To do all Munros !!!
