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.

The view is worth the climb. The walk into the cobbler is a bit tedious however the climb itself is a lovely. The eye of the needle and the pinnacle is not for those afraid of heights. The climb to the pinnacle is the easy part getting back not so much, skill is required, wouldn't recommend a beginner attempting this.
