This was the view from our hotel - The Claymore Hotel. Beautiful view regardless of the weather however on a clear day you can see just how beautiful it really is. Breathtaking.

A challenge for walkers to climb to the very top although there is a path. Really beautiful looking across Loch Long from Arrochar when early mist disperses from the Cobbler's peaks & the sun breaks through.

It is a nice walk.. we didn’t get to the top but we really enjoyed the views. It is a fairly long walk, and very rewarding! Hold certainty do again when/if we come in the area again! Would recommend!!!

Take it slow and give yourself hours to spend with a picnic! Beautiful, lush, but an easy climb with a stunning payoff.

Our hotel overlooked the cobbler mountain, it was snow covered and looking over the loch from our hotel it was a postcard view, the sun and blue skies the backdrop.

Great path to the top of The Cobbler. We climbed there in late Nov and got an amazingly sunny day. The climb is not so difficult if you have proper tracking shoes and windstopper jacket. On top there has been lot of frozen snow so...More

Not too difficult. Very pleasant views. Mostly well maintained paths. Some trickier bits too. Must admit didn't reach top as I've got a medical condition . But very satisfied what I achieved

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.
