884m. The guidebooks all wax lyrical about this one. Thread 'the Argyll Needle' (go through the rock), follow the ramp leftward and make the final moves. Said to be the hardest summit in Scotland (the one with the hardest easiest way up, that is).

Saw another flinger with the same plan as me for the following weekend! Went up south face of Narnain, up to Ime and then back along the cobbler going back to the car park. Lovely.

Will return to try some of the more difficult winter climbs another occasion. Don't be put off by its lack of Munro status. This is a challenging and well worthwhile peak!
