From Glen Croe, standard route up and down. A grassy, pathless slog for two thirds of the ascent. Enjoyed the summit even though the bigger hills were cloud covered with occasional glimpses of more.Chris Mac15/10/2019
With Sue from A83 on way from Edinburgh, sunny and showers.Frank12/10/2019

Out & back from the parking spot at the bridge over the Croe Water. On own.MorecambeMonkey22/05/2018
From the Cobbler to this lonely summit. Solo. Descended SE then SW to the car at the bridge 243060. Under 6 hours and just over 6 miles.bolton22/05/2018
From the Cobbler. Descended well made path to point 628, then point 637, contoured pathless SW flank of Beinn Ime to the col, then straightforward but lumpy plod to the obvious summit. Then down steep grassy slopes to Rest and be Thankful.Owen B13/05/2018
Me and Colin. Beautiful day.iansm26/01/2018
Arrochar - Cruach nam Miseag - Beinn Narnain - Beinn Ime - Beinn Luibhean - The Cobbler N Peak - The Cobbler - Arrochar. Tough, pathless descent of Beinn Ime's SW face followed by a mostly pathless climb from the Bealach a'Mhargaidh is rewarded by a summit poised on the edge with remarkable views down to the A83.Mark Jackson20/08/2017
From Beinn Ime followed the path towards Beinn Narnain a little way before descending to Bealach a'Mhargaidh. Ascended via E ridge, weaving a way between the crags. With JT. Descended back to Bealach a'Mhargaidh and then down to Butterbridge on a bagger's path. From Butterbridge, walked to Abyssinia bothy. With JT.Sprog25/07/2017
With Ikuko after The Cobbler and by traversing the flanks of Beinn Ime. 10.6 miles and 4443 ft ascent. Wow!!GWR Chris03/05/2017
Beinn Luibhean and Beinn Ime from Butterbridge. Route and write-up at:
A great short walk from Butterbridge, perfect for a winter's day when the morning was thick fog and drizzle. Just time to scamper up and down after the rain stopped, and catch brilliant sunset views at the end of the day. The whole walk is on easy, relatively dry ground with a decent, faint path all the way. Red kite seen in the coire.Gill19/12/2016

3 of 4: From The Cobbler.ChrisR16/09/2015
from butterbridge, which seemed a good idea.. steep and pathless in places.. cloud from 550m. was intent on taking in Ime too..but seeing nothing i elected to follow the burn down past pipeline and out below RABT. followed road back.stig_nest27/11/2014
Followed burn from Butterbridge to col with Ben Ime, then up to top. Descended direct over grass slopes.neimcv14/10/2014
With Mora, from Glen CroeBLACKHILL22/09/2014
Clambered over to here after Ben Ime. Fine spot for lunch just underneath the summit 'shelf'. Had the hill to myself. Poor choice of route back crossing the gullies back to the saddle between the cobbler and Narnain.GravelMonkey23/05/2014
Butterbridge- Beinn Luibhean- Ben Ime- Bealach a' Mhaim- Butterbridge walk with Pete. Used the path then quickly onto the ridge, very steep in place. We had views from the summit but cloud was starting to roll onto the mountains to the S. With Petepwheeler26/05/2013
Done before the Munro. Lovely rocky summit.Play2End01/05/2013
Evening ascent after work, while my wife was at her Book Group! Directissima route up and down via main road through Glen Croe. Great views at the top.milngavie_kenny13/06/2012
direct ascent from Glen Croe. On my own, hill quiet apart from ravens. barely 2.5 hrs up and down. Strangely peaceful at summit despite traffic noise.niallp09/06/2012

Steady ascent after steep drop from Beinn Ime. Descended back to col and then contoured round to Bealach a' Mhaim which was easier than expected.campagvelocet24/08/2009

Bagged as part of drive home. From Butterbridge climbed northern ridge. Woman bagger was 5 minutes ahead of me. Later found out by guide book south ridge is better. Nice day - 3 hours total.Jhimmy25/09/2008

Climbed Dec. 29th 2008 via. the tedious NW face and onto the W ridge - not reccomended. Snow, and cloud but "fog bows", and other interesting lighting created an intersting ascent.Kevin2903529/12/2007

With Dave Roeder. From car at 243060 (16:00) up S ridge to summit in mist. Rained heavily during descent. Finished 18:30. dbb10/07/2006
Solo ascent with dogs. They played in snow at top.alexmaclennan25/02/2006
From Rest & Be Thankful, my 2 bros & neph found the last 3rd much more interesting than the lower slopes. Weather mostly sunny with great views to be had at summit. Spiced up the descent by coming down via rocky outcrops.AndyBlair197223/07/2005
