The Cobbler (884m) has three distinct summits clustered together in a group and takes its name from the formation on top of the highest peak, which is said to resemble a shoemaker at work.  It is composed of mica schist, which was once layers of clay and mud that have been metamorphosed due to great heat and pressure.  Otherwise known as Ben Arthur, it is part of a group called the Arrochar Alps in Argyll and Bute.  It is separated from its taller neighbour Beinn Narnain (926m) by a deep bealach running below the sheer Yawning Crag.
