Beinn Narnain (926m)

A neighbour of Beinn Ime and often walked in a circuit with its taller sibling, Beinn Narnain also offers a fantastic hike from close to Arrochar.

Beinn Narnain is part of the Arrochar Alps mountain range, which combined with the Rest and Be Thankful Pass in the nearby Glen Croe signify a dramatic landscape transition between the mountainous National Park and the Argyll area beyond.

The hike itself is quite rocky and involves a little scrambling, hence its name which translates as “hill of notches”, if approached directly from the Loch Long side (an alternative is to follow the glen as if walking to Beinn Ime and then head up to the north and then the east from the bealach).

Views from the 926m top are beautiful, taking in The Cobbler (Ben Arthur), Beinn Ime and many hills and mountains further afield.

You can find information about the trail up Beinn Nairnan here.

We want everyone to enjoy the National Park in a safe and responsible manner. Be aware that the owners of the land you are crossing might be engaged in deer management and other land management activities and you can help minimise the chance of disturbance. Read more about it in the Heading to the Hills practical guide.

Hiking and hillwalking are risk sports. Always ensure you are prepared before heading out to the hills – information and practical advice on how to stay safe can be found by reading about Safety and skills in the mountains from Mountaineering Scotland.

Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park Authority cannot be held responsible for any accidents, injuries or damage sustained whilst hiking in the Park. All persons taking part in such activities do so at their own risk, acknowledging and accepting the risk of accident, injury or damage.
