The Cobbler, Arrochar
The Cobbler - also known as Ben Arthur - has the most distinctive outline of any mountain in the Southern Highlands and makes a fantastic shorter hillwalk. Extremely popular, the path on the way up has been improved in recent years and once past the initial zig zags makes a pleasant ascent. This route explores both main peaks of the Cobbler before descending on a rugged path between the two. Alternatively the route can be made easier by returning the same way.
Clear paths with some steep rocky sections, particularly on the descent.
Citylink buses to Arrochar, local buses to Arrochar and Succoth.
Succoth car park, Arrochar.
