Beinn Narnain and Beinn Ime
The compact group of mountains known as the Arrochar Alps are renowned for their steep, rugged and rocky nature. However, the highest peak - Beinn Ime - has a simple slope when approached from this direction. Beinn Narnain has a much rougher and rockier character. The views - especially of the nearby Cobbler - are excellent.
Rocky, steep and eroded path on Beinn Narnain with very mild scrambling. Beinn Ime is a broad dome on this side and the return route has a good path.
