We walked some of the route but not the whole way. Very impressive and can be seen from all around Arrochar. Ardgarten Forrest walk is worth a visit too.

While staying at the Claymore hotel snow arrived so me and my partner decided we wanted to step into it, we didn't get far up the cobbler because of ice but at least we got so far(every time we come here we always say about climbing the cobbler). It's best not to risk going up the cobbler if not sure... More

This walk has some stunning view if you get a nice day. Looking over the loch to Arrochar or down the Rest and be Thankful. I'd say the first part through the forest was my least enjoyable part of this walk, zig zag path seemed never ending. Great achievement once we reached the top.

The site can easily be missed, the easiest way to find it is to look out for the waterfall on your right-hand side. If you see it then that means you have just passed the Succouth Car Park by 100-200 meters. Once you park up, make sure you purchase a parking permit at time of typing it was £1 per... More

We didn't top it (poor weather for that) but it's a lovely walk up through the forest in the snow. The new path is apparently a lot less arduous than the old one and easy enough to follow. A reasonable level of fitness would be helpful, there's a lot of up and some of the stream crossings are a bit... More

This is a hill that every one should get there boots on and get on this hill. A lovely hill that most people can walk up on a lovely day.the view that can be seen will make the walk well worth the trip.

the Trossachs is such a beautiful place so fresh and its the Rob Roy country great for walkers and the outdoor people the cobbler is such a great walk and when you get to the top its well worth the trek as you can see for miles of the most wonderful sceanery in the world

For most people this would be a good introduction to the joys of walking and climbing in Scotland. This is a relatively straightforward climb to a good height that should be within the reach of most. Make sure to read the mountain weather forecasts first though, and pack for the summit, not the valley.
