“This wee beauty cannot be missed.”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Great wee Corbett, with 2 options up, the easy route and the one a little more challenging. They meet up anyway. Gorgeous views. I never tire of this walk, done it loads, never fails to fulfill me. If you have the head for heights go through the eye of the Cobbler at the top!

“Climb Ben Arthur (The Cobbler)”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Great views from the top. Bit of a trek to get there but well worth the effort. Most of the path is well marked, bit of a scramble to get to the top.

“A classic”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

I've been up the Cobbler numerous times - sometimes with a terrible hangover - and even back when they had the punishing 'old path' that shot straight up the hillside. If you aren't scared of a hauling yourself up some rocks, I recommend going up the front side and avoiding the stepped path around the back of the hill. That path is boring (not to mention long and steep!) whereas the path up the front is a lot more fun and there is no real scrambling.
