About

Beinn Ìme is a mountain with an elevation of 1,011 metres, the highest mountain in the Arrochar Alps, in the Southern Highlands of Scotland.

Beinn Ìme is often ascended with Beinn Narnain, a hard route that takes 6-7 hours. It covers a rocky, steep and eroded path on Beinn Narnain with some scrambling involved, starting at the Succoth car park, Arrochar. The return route has a good path.

Before you go

  • This is a wild and remote place so make sure you are fully prepared for your visit.

    This means wearing the appropriate clothing and footwear for the the conditions, having a compass, map of the area and the knowledge to use these.

    You should also take some food, plenty of water, a first aid kit with an emergency whistle, a head torch and a mobile phone. You should also have spare warm and waterproof clothing with you and a survival bag should you need to await rescue for an emergency situation on the mountain.

    Always tell someone details of your route and give an indication of the time you should be expected back.
