The Cobbler

Located close to Glasgow (only an hour further north, by road or rail) The Cobbler is a hill not to be missed. Its magnificent shape can be seen clearly on the skyline as you approach the start of the walk, as seen in the photo. The climb has three main sections to it: First a straight, but steep ascent through Forestry Commission land to reach the first crags of Ben Narnain. Second a much gentler, flatter section which takes you along the hillside, then inland along the valley between The Cobbler and Ben Narnain. Finally a steep, scramble up the northern ridge to reach the eye-hole challenge. The final peak is not one for the faint hearted, requiring a climb through an eye-hole window onto a 1m ledge (with a 30m drop next to it)! Having said that it is a wonderful feeling to conquer your fear and stand on the top - and it does make an impressive photograph. Munro baggers should stop and consider Scotland's other hills, as they would be missing out on a fabulous walk, and climb, if they ignored this peak.
