The Arrochar Alps

 If you’re driving to Argyll’s Secret Coast via the Rest & Be Thankful mountain pass, then you’ll have passed through Arrochar and witnessed the beauty of the mountains clustered around the head of Loch Long. These peaks are known as the ‘Arrochar Alps’ and offer some of the best walking and climbing in Argyll. They include the famous Cobbler, one of Scotland’s most iconic – and best loved – peaks. 

If you fancy a bit of hill walking, the Cobbler makes a great day trip from Argyll’s Secret Coast. Arrochar is just over an hour’s drive from us and you’ll need to give yourself a good four hours to climb the Cobbler. The trip is easily done in a day and is stunning whether during the winter snow or summer sunshine!
