Beinn Ìme /ˌbɛn ˈmə/[2] is the highest mountain in the Arrochar Alps, in the Southern Highlands of Scotland. There are three usual routes of ascent. From Succoth, one may follow the same path that is used to reach The Cobbler before taking the right fork near the base of the Cobbler's main crags and continuing up the glen, across the bealach and up Ben Ìme's eastern ridge. Alternatively, the summit can be reached from the pass of Rest and be Thankful and from the Loch Lomond side, using the private road that leads to Loch Sloy. Beinn Ìme separates the Dunbartonshire landscape of Loch Lomond in the East and the Argyll Highlands of Loch Fyne and Loch Goil anywhere north, west, south west. Beinn Ìme is the landmark to the entrance to Argyll.
