Beinn Ime from Butterbridge below Rest and be Thankful
|Summit:|| 3,317 feet NN255084 |
Beinn Ìme in Argyllshire is the highest mountain in the Arrochar Alps in the Southern Highlands. Its name is Gaelic, and means "Butter mountain". Rising to 3,317 feet, Beinn Ìme is a Munro, and one of the more southerly of the Munros.
Beinn Ìme separates the Dumbartonshire landscape of Loch Lomond in the east and the Argyll Highlands of Loch Fyne and Loch Goil anywhere north, west or south-west. Beinn Ìme is the landmark to the entrance to Argyll.
There are three usual routes of ascent. From Succoth, one may follow the same path that is used to reach The Cobbler before taking the right fork near the base of the Cobbler's main crags and continuing up the valley, across the bealach and up Beinn Ìme's eastern ridge.
