Sunny but Blustery. Beinn Ime

Route: Beinn Narnain and Beinn Ìme

Munros: Beinn Ìme, Beinn Narnain

Date walked: 07/06/2017

Time taken: 5 hours

Distance: 13.5km

Ascent: 1011m

Left this Munro till last as part of my Munro bagging plan of the Arrochars. So glad that I did as most times I go, the cloud cover is always around the summit preventing any decent views. The sun was out and it was almost clear blue sky making the views spectaculiar. I started from succoth car park following the path through the forest straight up to the fork that splits towards the ascent to the back of the cobbler and Beinn Ime/Beinn Nanairn. As you walk down the path that is currently under construction by volunteers building in footpaths on all the the routes you veer left to start your ascent up Beinn ime. It can be a little boggy and precarious under foot. ( Gaiters are a must) the path is well defined and once on the top it becomes clear why people get so much enjoyment out of climbing Munros. (Wrap up well though as it is freezing at the top) . On my descent the volunteers were out in force building the path to Beinn Ime and Nanairn as well as repairing sections of the path through the forest.
