Route Description for Beinn Ime and Beinn Luibhean Walk
The Beinn Ime and Beinn Luibhean Walk presents the alluring opportunity to rise to the challenge of reaching the summit of the highest mountain in the Arrochar Alps, Benn Ime. The 6.8 km route is short but sweet and allows you to conquer two impressive peaks in under 4 hours. The ascents of both peaks are steep, and the terrain extremely rocky, so proper footwear is a must for this walk.
The walk begins from the car park near butterbridge as you ascend via a stream towards the col between the two peaks. The summit of Beinn Ime is reached via rocky outcrops, and once there, you’ll revel in spectacular views of the surrounding Alps. Retrace your steps to the col and prepare to ascend the west summit of Beinn Luibhean. To return, head down the north ridge to rejoin the same trail running parallel to the stream from the beginning of the walk.
