Gaelic = 'butter mountain' (from seasonal yellow colour)
The walk starts at the lochside carpark at Succoth from where you cross the BUSY MAIN ROAD to access the hill by the marked path.
The path leads straight up the hill with no rest for about 1000 ft, crossing the forestry road, up through the opening made by the burn and follows a line of concrete blocks which at one time carried the tramway used in the building of the Loch Sloy hydro scheme.
At the end of the concrete blocks the Cobbler path turns left but no rest for you as you continue up the hillside following a rough track toward the first of a series of rocky outcrops. Whilst the rocky outcrops will cause you to put hand to rock occasionally they should cause no serious trouble providing a little exposure does not bother you.
At the summit you find a level area about the size of a football pitch and covered with loose rocks. Excellent views may be had here to the Cobbler, Ben Ime and Ben Vane as well as vast panoramas to loch long with the Clyde estuary beyond.
