Climbing The Scottish

Park Arrochar Scotland


The preferred slope in the region could be the Cobbler (or Ben Arthur), featuring its distinctive rocky summit that’s expected to look like a cobbler hammering at a footwear. Beinn Narnain, only across the street, is a Munro (among Scotland’s mountains over 3, 000 feet).

You'll want to allow about 7 hours for the 7 ½ mile / 12 km trip. Indications will show you towards the side of the forest. Afterwards you’ll be on open mountain ground, where in actuality the path is unmarked. You’ll find course details at Munromagic and Walkscotland. Always check our suggestions about mountain walking before you decide to tripped.

Arrive here by-boat - overland

Arrochar, on shore of Loch longer, is a double to Tarbet, on Loch Lomond. Both settlements tend to be divided by a pass only 130 feet (40m) above sea-level: reduced enough to pull ships from a single human body of liquid to a higher. Title ‘Tarbet’ in fact arises from old Irish words indicating ‘carrying across’.

In 1263 a bold Viking raiding celebration hauled their longships overland from Arrochar to Loch Lomond and again. Their particular expedition later came to a sticky end up in a stormy ocean battle at Largs.


How to get right here

From Glasgow, stick to the A82 across the western shore of Loch Lomond to Tarbet. Take the A83 signposted for Campbeltown as well as on to Arrochar. Stick to the roadway across the head for the loch therefore the car park is on your left. The car playground are at grid reference NN 294 048.
