1,011m of uninterrupted MTB descending down one of Scotland’s finest Southern Munros. Only 1 hour from Glasgow, Arrochar is at the head of Loch Long which means the climb starts at sea level. The ultimate reward is the continuous descent from the summit, with some nice drainage ditches and steep staircases to really test your skills.
The climb to about 600m is along a well built path that is shared with the climb to the Cobbler (Ben Arthur) and Beinn Narnain so it’s a no go for an early descent and is probably best avoided altogether at the weekend.
If you are as lucky as me to get a clear day, the view are absolutely outstanding – Ben Nevis to the North, the Paps of Jury and Goatfell of Arran to the South West with the mighty Ben Lomond to the South East.
I cannot recommend the MTB descent of Beinn Ime more, it is an absolute belter! Hit up the comments if you know of any others that rival this one (munros or not).
