Elevation is the altitude of a place above sea level.
Peak’s prominence is the least vertical to be covered to get from the summit to any other higher terrain.

Mountains in Scotland with a height of over 914 m / 3 000 ft bear a special name, the Munros. They are named after Sir Hugh Munro, the 4th Baronet (1856–1919), who produced the first list of such hills, known as Munro’s Tables, in 1891.
Beinn Narnain (sometimes anglicised as Ben Narnain) is a mountain in the southern Highlands of Scotland, near Arrochar. It forms part of a group of hills known (unofficially) as the Arrochar Alps, and is a Munro. The name Beinn Narnain means "hill of notches", and describes the mountain's notched profile.
Beinn Narnain is usually climbed from Succoth at the head of Loch Long. The most commonly used route starts by climbing directly up the hillside, following a line of concrete blocks that were originally supports for a cable railway used during the construction of watercourse diversions forming part of the Loch Sloy hydro-electric scheme (Until the construction of new path, this was also the route towards The Cobbler). At one point the path crosses a level track, and one must continue by climbing some exposed rock immediately opposite - this appears to be part of the stream bed and not the path.
Where the concrete blocks cease, the path continues up Beinn Narnain's craggy south ridge. There are several mild scrambling sections, which provide an enjoyable experience for the casual walker. The route bypasses some impressive and, when shrouded in mist at least, apparently almost impassable crags - "The Spearhead" - by means of a steep gully immediately before the summit. The final stages of the climb include some mild exposure, but this should not intimidate a hillwalker of even limited experience.
Beinn Narnain's northern ridge drops down to the Bealach a' Mhàim, a three-sided bealach with other ridges leading to The Cobbler and Beinn Ìme. An ascent of Beinn may thus easily be extended to give a longer day on the Arrochar Alps.
There's a trail leading to the summit.
