Loch Long is a beautiful little loch dwarfed by it’s much larger and more storied neighbor Loch Lomond, but it is really stunning in its own right, especially if you are in a cozy hotel room or pub overlooking the water and the mountains on...More

We are not skilled mountain walkers but gave this a go based on previous trip advisor reviews. Well worth it! The full walk is 2 hours but you can still walk to the top of the first mountain on the route in just over 1...More

We did no hike to the summit of the Cobbler due to time constraints, but the scenery in the area is awesome. Loch Long itself is beautiful, lying at the foothills of the Arrochar Alps, and walk along the Loch are also rewarding.

We have been told several times about the Cobbler and his work bench, however cannot make it out. It doesn't matter as it is a marvellous view. The reflections in the Loch are beautiful.

A challenging yet rewarding path which needs a good pair of boots and a bit of sweat on the early part of the walk. The views are worth the effort and once you go above the tree line the panorama is a treat. Wear appropriate...More

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.
