The views from climbing the Cobbler were worth every second of the steep climb. The carved wooden fox signals the start of the route and the first third is steep and winding through forest. The middle section is much gentler and enjoys 360* views. The...More

We did no hike to the summit of the Cobbler due to time constraints, but the scenery in the area is awesome. Loch Long itself is beautiful, lying at the foothills of the Arrochar Alps, and walk along the Loch are also rewarding.

We have been told several times about the Cobbler and his work bench, however cannot make it out. It doesn't matter as it is a marvellous view. The reflections in the Loch are beautiful.

A challenging yet rewarding path which needs a good pair of boots and a bit of sweat on the early part of the walk. The views are worth the effort and once you go above the tree line the panorama is a treat. Wear appropriate...More

Climbed this hill (a Corbett, ie 2,500 to 3,000 feet) on a busy Sunday. Excellent path to the bealach between The Cobbler/Ben Ime/Beinn Narnain, thereafter stone steps finally a rough path to the summit. A bit windy on the walk, but a clear view of...More

The walk is at the top end of moderate in comittement and effort required but gives its rewards in terms of views early with a number of spectacular views of Arrochar and Loch Long on the way up/down, There is even a seat bench some...More

I wouldn't say it's a hard hill to climb, the start through the woodlands is the most difficult stage. There is a difficult accent which is steep and rocky but there also is an easy way up.
