The Cobbler mountain.

Q. Does The Cobbler mountain in Scotland have just the one Corbet on its ridge ? I'm visiting nxt week n intend to climb it. Regards.

Richard Hill, Brecon


A. The Cobbler, also know as Ben Arthur, is a Corbett located near Arrochar at the northern end of Loch Long in the Arrochar Alps area of the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs to Loch Tay region of Scotland.

Climbing the bulk of The Cobbler (Ben Arthur) is relatively straight forward but reaching the actual summit involves crawling through a small hole in the rock and then a short Grade 2 scramble up a almost vertical rock face with a 30m (100ft) drop.

You can download the walk route and see some photos here: The Cobbler (Ben Arthur).

It is not recommended for the faint hearted and should only be attempted in bone dry conditions with a very, gentle breeze.

The summit ridge has just one classified top on it but it is possible to bag Beinn Narnain (923m/3039ft), a Munro and/or Beinn Ime (1011m/3318ft), also a Munro in the safe trip if the conditions are good and you have plenty of time and energy.

You could, at a stretch, bag Beinn Luibhean (890m/2821ft), a Corbett as well but that might be a bit too far for all but the fittest.

Hope this helps
