Cobbler (Ben Arthur) Height 2,900 Ft. (884 metres).
Distance approximately 7.5 miles (12 km) time 6 to 7 hours.
Access to this mountain is just outside the town of Arrochar,
when you reach the first car park on the left after rounding
the Head of Loch Long the path is just across the road.
Unfortunately there is ongoing tree felling at this path
and restrictions may apply (Date 18th April 2003).
The path from here is straight up, when you reach the main
forest path just keep going on a straight line until the
path that runs along the flank of the hill is reached. Turn
left here and continue along the path until you reach a
small dam holding back the waters of Allt a' Bhalachain,
from here you can see the splendid views of the Cobbler.
Now would be a good time to have a rest.
Follow the path towards the Cobbler, just after the two
Narnain Boulders the path crosses the burn, from here on
in the path becomes quite steep at places with a scramble
at the end to reach the ridge. Turn right to complete the
North Peak then make your way to the Centre Peak. The South
Peak has no defined path and as we had our dog with us we
decided to miss this one. As it was such a nice day we took
9 hours and enjoyed all the views for long as possible.
