The Arrochar Alps
On the northern border of Cowal are the Arrochar Alps, providing stunning vistas. The Arrochar Alps are a group of mountains located around the head of Loch Long, Loch Fyne,and Loch Goil, near the villages of Arrochar and Lochgoilhead in Argyll, Scotland.
The mountains are especially popular with hillwalkers, due to theirrnproximity and accessibility from Glasgow. They are largely within the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park and in part also extend into the Argyll Forest Park. Glens which go into the heart of the range include Glen Croe, Hell's Glen and Glen Kinglas.
