Found what was left of the trig. Cloud sat on the hill which cleared about 20 minutes after we left! Typical!

Steep descent in blizzard from Beinn Narnain to the bealach before an equally steep ascent to Beinn Ime. Intermitent views from summit which has a handy shelter in which stands the remains of the replacement trig point. A fine mountain.

Great run up to the summit in the snow. Unfortunately summit in cloud when I got there.

The metal supports are still visible. Good walk up from Succoth but not if you've just come for the trig!

Horrible boggy slog up Beinn Ime to see.....few rusty pegs and some bits of concrete! Crap weather also! Good day out though...

Only a few stones still present. But the walk to get to it was fun and gave wonderful views. We came from Ben Vane and then went on to Ben Narnain.

5/5 for the view, 1/5 for the pillar. All that remains of this stone built trig point are a few blocks of stone, some upright angle iron and the pillar bolt which is buried in the debris. This pillar was originally completed on 16th June 1956, cost £122.15s.6d. Teriary station in Block NS29, Greenock. the original FB No. was S8769, but during a later rebuild replacement FB No. 12166 was issued. The pillar bolt was unearthed for photography and buried again afterwards. 360° parorama from summit. The Ben was approached via Bealach a' Mhain (NN262071), from where other paths lead to The Cobbler, Ben Narnain, and back down to Arrochar. Photographed 1/05/2007, GRP.

Seems to have been constucted of a pile of stones and most of it has broken off - the metal foundation supports are still there, and a few stones are stuck to one of them.

Only rusty pegs remaining.

The weather conditions today could be best described as a monsoon! What a soaking we got! Needless to say there were no views from the summit due to the weather - I think the mist was down to almost road level. Done this hill from the lay-by at Glen Croe. Trig pillar definately not there. Up with a crowd including Peachy73.

My more experienced companions tell me that this now completely destroyed trig was struck by lightning. I don't think that's confirmed though.

From Glen Croe, with Fiona. FB number originally S8769, replaced by 12166 in 1977.

My recollection is that the pillar was there in 1988, but I was young(ish) and impetuous, so probably wasn't really concentrating at the top of an early Munro.
25th Jun 1988 14:00 by KevP
Really done as a Munro bag. Seem to recall the trig missing as I reached the top. Must check in my old photo album.

Ran up here during a visit to the 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh. Can't remember the condition of the pillar.

Intact and present in 1981 - now deceased, as are a lot of high altitude trigs.

Was there in 1978.
