Description: Beinn Narnain rises at the head of Loch Long directly opposite the village of Arrochar and only a short distance to the north-east of The Cobbler. It is recognisable by its flat summit and the steep crags of the Spearhead Buttress at the edge of the summit plateau. Beinn Ime is hidden behind Beinn Narnain in the view from Arrochar, but from other viewpoints, for example from Ben Lomond, it is well seen as the highest peak of the Arrochar Alps.
Beinn Narnain is most usually climbed from the head of Loch Long directly up its south-east ridge. The traverse to Beinn Ime can be continued north-westwards down to the wide col called Bealach a' Mhaim and up easy grassy slopes to Beinn Ime. The return to Loch Long is best made down the Allt a' Bhalachain by a path which leads back to the head of Loch Long.
There are two alternative shorter routes to Beinn Ime from the A93 road. One starts from Glen Croe and the other from near Butterbridge in Glen Kinglas.
