walk above the Rest and be Thankful road, taking in one Munro, one Corbett
and a top. Start from the car park just west of where the A83 crosses
the Kinglas Water. The first hill is the Corbett, Beinn Luibhean (858m),
the outlier of Beinn Ime.
over the bridge and leave the road about 100m SE of the bridge, to below
a ruined cottage. A path runs up alongside the burn, adjacent to cleared
forest and leads into the coire below the Bealach a'Mhargaidh. The bealach
is a relatively wide, flat one, at an altitude of about 680m.
the east ridge of Beinn Luibhean (hill of the little plant) up to its
cairn on a small crag. Retrace the route to the bealach then take the
steep and often rocky south-west slopes on Beinn Ime to reach the large
summit cairn on a crag.
this round of the "Beinn Ime group", descend north to the Glas Bhealach
and continue north up the south ridge of Beinn Chorranach (possibly hill
of the sickle - corran) to gain the summit at 885m.
the fine north ridge of that hill towards the oddly named ruin of Abyssinia.
(I heard from a local, many years ago, that a soldier had been out in
Africa and being very taken by the country had on his return built a house
there and named it so.) Take care on the ridge, which has many small steps
of schistose rock.
be little problem crossing the burn unless in flood, to gain the track
leading down Glen Kinglas and so back to the A83 opposite the bridge.
