Join us for a day of contrasts as we climb two of the Arrochar Alps' popular and easily accessible hills.

We'll first tackle the rugged peak of Beinn Narnain (Hill of Notches) characterised by some rocky, but not technically difficult, scrambles on approach to it's summit (926m). We'll then continue via the Bealach a' Mhàim onto its parent peak, Ben Ime (Butter Mountain) - the highest summit in the Arrochar Alps (1011m), but in spite of its grandness, is a much more rounded and easier hill to climb from this direction.

Our return route will take us down a good footpath (the same one that is often used when climbing the neighbouring Cobbler).
