Arrochar Alps

Guided hillwalking days over the Munros in the Arrochar Alps

The group of rugged mountains overlooking the western shores of Loch Lomond are collectively known as the Arrochar Alps. In the core of this group is Beinn Ime - a high domed peak dominating all around. The surrounding peaks are no less rugged, the most famed of which, The Cobbler, requires some easy but exposed scrambling through a hole to reach the top of.

Late Autumn is the finest time to hike over these hills - the colours are delightful with snow most likely on the higher ground.
