Beinn Ime

Beinn Ime's Height:1011m
Summit Grid Reference:NN 255 084
Translation:Small Butter Hill
Start Point:From Loch Long Car Park, Inveruglas or Glen Croe

 

With a height of 1011m, Beinn Ime is the highest mountain of the Arrochar Alps. Because of its height the mountain can be seen from several points in the north but not from Arrochar as it is shadowed by Beinn Narnain. Beinn Ime is part of the northern Argyll Forest Park and is only a short distance away from Ben Arthur (also known as The Cobbler). The name “Beinn Ime” means “Butter Hill”.

 

There are four different routes to the mountain. Most visitors start from the Loch Long car park nearby Arrochar (NN 294 048) from where a footpath climbs steeply up the mountain. The path climbs up the south-east ridge. At one point the main path goes to The Cobbler but for Beinn Ime don’t follow the main path. Just continue following the stream until you reach the grassy slopes and you’ll reach the summit.

 

Ben Ime

There are a few alternative starting points which can be useful during the summer when many visitors go hill-walking in the Arrochar Alps. One easy alternative route starts from Inveruglas following the “hydro“ road. This path leads to Beinn Ime over the north-east ridge. Beinn Ime can also be climbed from Butterbridge in Glen Kinglas where a path goes alongside a stream. Glen Croe is another possibility to climb Beinn Ime. However, this approach is not very interesting.

 

Rock Climbing on Beinn Ime is possible on the east face at the Fan Gully Buttress which is 120m high. It can be reached by walking the “Hydro” road until the end. Fan Gully Buttress is good for climbing in the winter. However, it is not a good experience to climb this rock during wet conditions.

 

There are many possibilities to combine the routes to Beinn Ime with walks on other mountains such as Ben Vane, Beinn Narnain or the popular Cobbler. Besides the Arrochar Alps there are many other outdoor activity possibilities. As Loch Long and Loch Lomond are nearby there are excellent fishing opportunities. Another interesting activity is walking through the Argyll Forest. Both, Loch Long and Argyll Forest, are great for spotting wildlife such as seals.

 

Transport

 

There is a bus connection from Glasgow to Fort William and Oban. Busses stop in Tarbet and Inveruglas. By car from Glasgow just drive until Dumbarton and then take the A82 which goes directly to Tarbet/Arrochar and Inveruglas. Tarbet also has train connections to Glasgow.
