Is it possible for a 3000 foot mountain, visible from Glasgow, to be a hidden gem? I think so!
Beinn Narnain suffers from being so close to the Cobbler that it is missed by many visitors who climb its shorter but more famous neighbour. This is a shame as Beinn Narnain is a great mountain, with some spectacular views including great ones of the Cobbler.
From Arrochar we'll climb up the old Cobbler path, aka "the Bobby Robb Route", followed by some very mild scrambling onto Beinn Narnain, then down to the bealach We'll take the new Cobbler path back down to Arrochar, hopefully in time for a pint before the 6 o'clock bus home.
(We'll probably not have time to do Beinn Ime as well. When I recce'd it I was at the bus stop for about ten past 7, which would make it difficult to get the 6 o'clock bus)
Meet at the bus station with a return ticket to Arrochar for the 09.15 bus and a return ticket for the 18.08.

This is a circular walk
The bus might be busy in the summer, so you'll want to book your ticket in advance. The leader reserves the right to change the walk in the event of bad weather.
Be aware that boots that keep the water out would be a good idea. Much of the path is one of those new-fangled Sustrans shared routes - it doubles as a stream.
Give us a try!
