Taken from the Southeast ridge, on the way to climb the South top.
The Cobbler (OS posh name Ben Arthur, which is almost never used) is an iconic Scottish hill. In a country obsessed with 3000' hills, the much lower Cobbler is still extremely popular, on account of its shape, exciting peaks and easy accessibility from Glasgow, by road or rail.
The name is supposedly derived from a resemblance of a cobbler (North top, right) bent over his last (centre top). His wife, Jean (South top, left) looks on.
