My wife and I climbed to the top of Cobbler in June. Thankfully, the weather was clear. The first 90 minutes is difficult and lacks scenery but is followed by nice views and an easier walk. The Cobbler itself is harder but the back path...More

We walked this on lovely sunny day and were amazed at the wonderful views, it is quite a hike to the top but well worth it.

Its a fantastic hill, despite its lower height it can be more challenging than many Munroes. The tourist route from Succoth is a great introduction with 45 minutes dull start, followed by an hour on a path with great views around and finally an exhilarating...More

I did this walk the day after Ben Lomond having enjoyed that Munro, and thinking the cobbler would be a easier as it isn't as high. I was wrong! Admittedly the weather was better when i did Ben Lomond whereas on the cobbler it was...More

After dropping off the car very easy at a parking for 1 pound/day at the start of the hike, we started our climb. The first part (30 - 45 min) is, plainly said, boring. Its just a wide zigzag path up the hill. Once you...More

It wasn't a walk in the park. But really beautiful. We kinda lost our way. But enjoyed it. Even if it was raining and there was a lot of fog. It must've even more beautiful, if you can enjoy the view

Nice steady climb until you are near the top- then it gets a bit tougher, especially if it's raining. Lovely views at the top

How long would you say the entire club would take? And do you think the unfit should give it a go as well or should they try something easier? Thanks, Rohan

I wouldn't say it's a hard hill to climb, the start through the woodlands is the most difficult stage. There is a difficult accent which is steep and rocky but there also is an easy way up.
