Walk 108 – Beinn Ime from Butterbridge, Glen Kinglas – 5.5 miles

This route up Beinn Ime (1011 m / 3316 ft), the highest peak in the Arrochar Alps, avoids the crowded zigzagging footpath from Succoth. Starting at Butterbridge on A83, there is a burn to follow all the way to Glas Bhealach and although there is no path, the grassy slopes are easy going albeit steep at times. From the bealach it is a steep but short ascent to the summit, this time with a faint path to follow. The return leg brings you down the tourist route a short distance (boggy but gentle!) before you traverse across to Bealach a ‘ Mhargaidh and follow the burn down the glen on a grassy footpath back to the A83 at your starting point. … More Walk 108 – Beinn Ime from Butterbridge, Glen Kinglas – 5.5 miles

Walk 105 – The Cobbler & Ben Narnain, Arrochar – 7.2 miles

A circular route in the Arrochar Alps taking in the north peak of the iconic Ben Arthur, better known as The Cobbler (884 m / 2900 ft) followed by Ben Narnain (926 m / 3038 ft). A gentle start quickly becomes steep and challenging with lots of rocky outcrops. Will you be brave enough to go through “the eye of the needle”?? There is a good footpath the entire way although be prepared for very boggy conditions between the two mountains and on the lower slopes of Narnain. The descent from Narnain is very challenging in particular the steep gully known as The Spearhead. The final section follows the old tramline to connect with the forestry road into Arrochar. … More Walk 105 – The Cobbler & Ben Narnain, Arrochar – 7.2 miles
